I have a program I wrote that inputs a file and midifys it to a certain format. But is there a way to have the program traverse all the files of the specified type and change them? Can I have the files in folders under folders or do they have to be all in the same folder? Either way is fine for me.

Of course you can.
How to do it depends on the platform you're developing for, but any platform must have a way to get directory listings, and then it's just a matter of you writing some code that parses the filenames you get and test the extension, and recursesively searches through subdirectories.
