I'm trying to connect a home security system via cat5 to the Internet. The security system is mounted to the wall in my garage next to the Fios box. Is it possible to activate the Ethernet port in the customer access panel inside the Fios box so I can run the cat5 cable to it?

If you're asking if the ethernet port in the ONT can be activated in addition to the coax WAN connection to your router, the answer is no.  Only one form of WAN connection can be active at a time.
