What would cause the center of my Bromeliad to turn brown and die, while the rest of the plant is still green? And the new growths that are coming up at the base of the plant, should they be transplanted from the main plant into different pots?

It sounds as though your bromeliad has finished blooming and is now entering the natural process of dying. After a bromeliad has bloomed, it will never bloom again, though the green leaves can hold on for some time. Also, after a bromeliad has bloomed, it will produce pups that can be removed once they get to be a few months old. These can be replanted and they will bloom in about a year or so.
