Seems simple, but I can't figure this out.

Is there any way in AS2 to format a specific cell of a datagrid component? So, let's say I want to make cell 2,4 bold with green text?

If this isn't possibble, or difficult, I could settle with formatting a specific row as such? For example, set row 3 to be bold with green text.

Indeed it is possible using CellRenderer Class.

Using CellRenderer class, we can apply complete HTML formatting (supported by flash for any textField) to any cell of DataGrid

here is an example with source files:

That looks interesting but if I use the following code, the myHtmlFunction never gets fired?
myHtmlFunction = function (itemObj:Object, columnName:String) {
 
	trace("fired");
	
}
 
// --- DataGrid columns ---
userList_lb.columnNames = ["name"];
 
var col:mx.controls.gridclasses.DataGridColumn;
var totalWidth:Number = 0;	
 
col = userList_lb.getColumnAt(0);
 
col.headerText = "Image 1";
col.cellRenderer = "HtmlCellRenderer";
col["htmlFunction"] = myHtmlFunction;

Have you copied "HtmlCellRenderer" into your library or not..?
