How do I have both letter-size (8.5 X 11) and large (11 X 17 in) landscape pages in one manual? I have already created the large landscape master pages.
Do I have to have a different file for each large page (and blank following page) in a manual?
If so, how do I ensure the page and figure numbers are correct, and continue from the previous page/fig number in the preceding chapter file, and then continue properly in the chapter file following the inserted large-sized page file?
If one chapter has more than one large-sized page that needs to be inserted into it, how do I break up the chapter file to accommodate this, plus ensure the page and figure numbers remain correct and update correctly?

You are limited to one paper size in a FrameMaker file, so you will have to handle this with multiple FrameMaker files. You can control all numbering (page, chapter, figure and table) via the book window (including telling them to continue from the previous chapter in the book, or not). Just be sure they are all using the same flow tag—typically Flow A these days.
In terms of how to break them up in a file with multiple tabloid pages—open the original chapter, do a save as and keep the front section, delete the back pages, save. Open the original, save as, delete the front section, save the back pages, save. Put both sections into the book window and add the tabloid document in the middle. Adjust the numbering accordingly.
