Squid supports FTP natively.  You don't need to configure anything special 
provided your FTP setup is operating on standard ports etc.

Have you tried telling your client/s to use Squid for FTP and run into 

If so, give us details of your network arrangement, what configuration you have 
done, and what problems you run into, and we can try to help.

If you haven't tried yet, give it a go and see if it "just works" :)

Regarding the data analysis, this is not really a Squid question - we'd need 
to know what sort of analysis you want to do and what sort of results you're 
looking to get out of the end of it, and that question may be more suited to 
another forum such as Icinga or Grafana, for example.

Squid will do the proxying, but it's not a data analysis tool.
