It is necessary for me to make it possible for .htaccess files to be usable with IIS. Is there a way for this to be done? I know that on its own, IIS is not capable of handling this, but could I perhaps install some third party application that could do this for IIS?

You can use this software :

http://www.helicontech.com/ape/

Helicon Ape provides support for Apache .htaccess and .htpasswd configuration files in Microsoft IIS. It literally implements Apache configuration model and nearly all Apache modules in a single IIS add-on, not only making IIS compatible with Apache, but also extending it`s functionality by a number of highly essential features.

Includes following modules: mod_rewrite, mod_proxy, mod_auth, mod_gzip, mod_headers, mod_cache, mod_expires, mod_replace and others. You can check all currently available modules in the compatibility chart (the list is growing with new builds).

In IIS (Internet Information Server) the equivalent of .htaccess is web.config
