I'm looking to create a website. In this website, I would like for people to make accounts. Additionally, I would like this website to have the ability to make several reports and other documents which could be attached to these individual users, which would in turn show up on their account page. Does Dreamweaver have this form of storable data? Thank you for your time.

No, DW is just a glorified text editor with FTP and File Management functions, what you want would need to be done on your web server.

What you're looking for is a database, something like MySQL would do the trick and is installed on most hosting servers by default. However, to make use of databases, you'll need to master some server-side scripting, like PHP, to add/remove information from the database, then display that information in a user's browser through your website.

The type of site you're asking for is beyond anything built into DW, but could be done with DW if you bring the right skillset to the table.

What you described is a secure log-in  and Content Management System (CMS).   How you approach this will depend on your  experience with server-side and client-side web application development.
