Most new Mac Pros come with Bluetooth 2.0 EDR from the factory. If yours does not have BT 2.0, you can buy a cheap USB dongle to add the functionality. Just make sure you research compatibility with OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) before buying.
It does not even need to be expensive, most $5 dongles work just fine.

Depending what model of the Mac Pro you have, it might already have bluetooth installed. Check for the bluetooth hardware in System Preferences. If it is not there, then you can always buy a usb bluetooth adapter.

I have a Ma Pro 1,1 2006 and just added a Rocketfish 2.1 Bluetooth Adapter to it. Worked like magic. No drivers needed.

Take the machine to your local Apple store and they can install the correct module, along with the antennas that go with it. You might be able to walk into a store and buy it but I'm not 100% sure. There are also usb bluetooth dongle things that also will give you bluetooth capability on a machine without it.
