No. libssh2 is an SSH library, not a file transfer library. There is support for SFTP in libssh2, since that protocol is quite closely related to SSH, but there is not support for FTP.

Yes. The application must create the connection, not libssh2. The app gives libssh2 an already-connected socket, so libssh2 does not care if it is v4 or v6.
