Yes, you can and it's also documented. The -I option on import is used for
that, e.g.

cvs import -I*.exe -n MyModule

If you want to exclude multiple file types you should repeat the -I option
accordingly, e.g.:

cvs import -I*exe -I*dll -n MyModule

No, Import always works on directories, not files. You could however use the
Add command for individual files.

Hope this helps.
