instead of publishing an application you can publish content.  You just select content from the publish application wizard and provide the unc to the folder.  Just need to make sure users have the proper permissions to the folder.

To answer your question, yes this is possible:

How to Publish Explorer.exe with Specific Drives, Specific Folders, or URL

Is this safe though?  Only if you lock it way down.  Explorer is one of the most versitile tools on a server if you really know what you are doing.  You can access the network, the internet, and every part of the pc that the user has access to.  Furthermore, from Task Manager (on any terminal session) you can spawn just about any program you have rights to (explorer.exe, cmd.exe, mmc.exe...) so a good hardening is always smart.
