Here is a good article on setting up SFTP on centos, it's fairly straight forward and relies on ssh.

sftp is enabled by default on just about every Linux distro including CentOS, so there's no need to do anything unless you want to set up chrooted sftp.
Install scponly, and then change the shell to /usr/bin/scponly (or /usr/local/bin/scponly) for whatever user you want to give scp access to. This allows the user to use scp, but not log in to the system over ssh, or execute other commands. scponly can also be used to chroot the user to their home directory
