1. There are 2 ways to select a group of frames - one is to hold down 
Shift and click the frames sequentially. The other is to click-drag 
around all the frames you wish to group. You can combine these methods.

2. The issue of not disturbing other items can often be solved by the 
use of Layers. You can only work on one Layer at a time, so it's 
impossible to disrupt anything on a Layer you're not currently working on.
