1. In your current setup, which DOES have each file as a separate layer, you'd need to modify the expression that Cassius suggested to something like this:

myScale = linear(index,1,99,100,80);
[myScale, myScale];

But if you're really going to hold each frame/layer for several frames, this expression will give you a steppy effect you may not want, so...

2. You should probably use an image sequence as Andrew describes. Image sequences allow you to treat a set of individual frames like this as if they were a movie. When you import one of the image files, make sure the sequence option is checked.

More on image sequences here:

And since you're new to Ae, here's a good place to start:

I think the Andrew Devis After Effects Basics series and the Video Copilot Basic Training and are particularly good starts.
