Is it possible to do bandwidth throttling by protocol on the ASA 5505?  For instance, if I wanted to limit FTP traffic to 1MB/sec from the Internet.  My old D-Link router would do bandwidth throttling to prevent the Internet from being bogged down by FTP traffic or streaming video.  I am curious if the ASA 5505 has a similar feature.

Yes, implemented via QoS policies.

See the following link on how to configure QoS on the ASA:

Absolutely, as batry)boy suggests you can set up a policy map and police the traffic:

For example:

hostname(config)# policy-map http_traffic_policy
hostname(config-pmap)# class http_traffic
hostname(config-pmap-c)# inspect http
hostname(config-pmap-c)# police output 250000
hostname(config)# service-policy http_traffic_policy interface outside

hope this helps, this is one example, I am sure there is more.
