I want to make a program that can intercept events (something like OnClickFolder as well as OnClickFile). Is there a way Spy++ or similar programs can do this?

Yes, Spy++ can detect folder- and file-clicks in shell windows. Just make sure you're monitoring the right process (typically Explorer.exe).
