It would be great if we can connect or open the password protected excel workbook inside Power BI Desktop. Of course we should know & provide the password first.

Needed.

This topic may spilt into multiple conversations about secured data (ex. using password protected Excel workbooks to build/refresh a PBIX; storing passwords within the structure/content of the associated Query, controlling user access to "secured" data columns with the published Report or App, etc.)

for sure needed, make sure there will be a field for users as pop-up to fill in the same password to open the data...
