neighbor_type_domain for ACLs?

Hello, Squidders...

My situation - I've got a parent squid proxy that doesn't allow ftp
objects through -- let's call it parent1. I've set

cache_host_acl parent1 !ftp

to not request such from this proxy.
I want to use the NLANR caches (thanks, Duane, for letting us do so) for
ftp objects - currently I've got the NLANR caches set as sibling.

My questions:

is there a version of the neighbor_type_domain parameter that allows my
squid to use a neighbor as parent for ftp, and sibling for all else? i.e:

acl ftp proto ftp
neighbor_type_acl parent ftp

where my proxy would fetch ftp MISSes from, but not
http MISSes?
If not, is there anybody who's found a workaround to make squid work like
this? (clever uses of the cache_host_acl tag, etc)

Another, related question - what does the -h parameter on ftpget do? Running
ftpget without parameters says "Convert to HTTP" - does this mean the
incoming ftp stream is handed to the browser as an http object?
