Is it possible to make Excel select the word and only the word when you double-click on a word?

In pretty much every software application on the planet, if you double-click on a word, it will select just the word, not all the surrounding punctuation. Excel doesn't work this way. If you select a word in Excel, chances are, it will select a lot more than just that word.

Well, I'm afraid the behavior is hardwired into Excel. It's not something you can change. Word has a different behavior as well (try double clicking on a word with an underscore (_) in the middle in Word and in notepad and observe the difference).
