You probably can't make it totally static without spending more money but there is something called dyndns, so take a look at that.

You have to ask you ISP that question but if you tell them that you want to host an FTP site, then the price goes up. That's why I mentioned the dynamic dns site.

At my work we have been switching from wireless WAN to VPNs, and have been getting static IPs. They have been charging us a $25 setup fee and another $5.95 a month for each IP address, so basically with our ISP, it's $31 up front, the $6 extra a month. It might be more or less with your ISP.

edit: You'll probably want to get a router or something and set a routing statement so that any incoming FTP on port 21 gets sent to 192.168.x.x (your ftp server). I would recommend the Watchguard x10e firewall, which does router functions too. It's what we are working with here. A bit pricey though, around $500.
