Is there any safe way to test Firepower's IDS policy on a machine to see if the IDS policy is working? I know of the EICAR test for detecting malicious files, but is there an equivalent site we can go to for IDS testing?
I have personally used Qualys in the past. They have a personal/community edition that is free of charge that does not include all features and can scan a limited number of IPs. However, if you end up liking it, you can get the paid version:
I hope this helps!

Is it safe to say that Firepower can protect against most common ransomware assuming it matches the appropriate rule with DPI/Intrusion policy enabled or is that more of a function of the security intelligence?
you can test the FP intrusion policy/rule by performing a penetration test.
i tried kali linux 'armitage' to trigger them.
