When I look at the XCode project file in the Finder it appears as a directory so I cannot double-click on it in order to open it. How do I get it to change back to a file?

The XCode project file is actually a package. Packages are a collection of files in a directory structure that appear, to the user, as a single file. For example, all applications on Mac OS X are packages which contain the actual executable file, xml configuration .plists, icons, localisation files etc., yet the user only perceives a single file which they can interact with. So what you are seeing here is actually the true nature of how the project is stored on the file system. For some reason, Finder is not hiding it from you as it should.

The most common reason is that you have not upgraded your software sufficiently so that the Finder does not recognise these directories as packages. Check the version of XCode you are running and make sure it is compatible with the project file that is broken. For reference, .xcodeproj requires XCode 2.1+.
