Is it possible to attach a file to a Xerte resource so that it can be downloaded by users? I'm trying to write a guide on accessible MS Word documents and I want users to be able to download a test document to practice on.

Just add some text, e.g. Download Word document, select it and click the hyperlink button in the wysiwyg toolbar. Although you might normally type or paste a URL there you'll also see a Browse Server button where you can then upload your Word document, select it and when to close those windows that will be a link to download the Word document. What I would recommend is making sure your Word document has underscores instead of spaces and usually best to stick to all lowercase too e.g. my_accessible_template.docx
