    FTP setup is done through the domain configuration section.  When you add a domain, or edit a domain after creation, the setup dialog asks for an ftp user and password.  After setup, you can define additional web users for the ftp.  I  believe Plesk is rather limited in what in can do for aliased or remote may need another solution to include directories outside of Plesk's vhost area.
