In MS Word, how can I restrict the Page Header (and Footer) to a subset of the document? I don't want them to appear on every page.

This is accomplished using Section Breaks from the Insert menu. Once you define a section you can then modify its header without affecting the rest of the document by first turning off Same as Previous. Here is a good resource for working with sections. I would suggest reading through it thoroughly before attempting this because working with sections can be tricky if you're not familiar with how Word uses them.

You have to set up sections. Sections are bigger units than paragraphs, and they can have their individual headers and footers.
