A default installation can do a lot with TSV files, so I think that part is

Can you provide more information on how you want to associate the files?
What will that association look like?  If you just want file names in
additional columns, then I think that should be workable too.

If you are looking for more sophisticated bundling, Galaxy does have
support for complex data types where you can bundle together multiple
files, but I haven't worked with it yet, and I suspect it is non-trivial.  (
