I'm guessing this is pretty much impossible, but thought I'd ask.

I know you can block whole flash elements with things like AdBlock, but was wondering if there was a way you could block elements, such as images, WITHIN a flash file.

Block, no. Some elements are packaged within the flash object while some are loaded from external sources.

You can use javascript to control some elements of a flash object, but you'd have to know a lot about the flash object to do this such as specific names or ids of the components.
