I want to turn each letter of my text into its own separate layer (not group)

With such an elaborate description, my best advice is to start typing: one character per text layer.

I have a sentence that I want letters to animate on in different ways. Like you said, I thought about typing each letter which is quite a pain. I also tried "create outlines" on the sentence and "auto trace" on the separation of each of the letters of the sentence. Both techniques work, but are very time consuming.

Ah, now we're getting someplace! You might want to look into Per-Character 3D animation, available in AE8 and later. Here's a brief description:

There are other handy text animation descriptions in that section, too.
