If you put a puppet pin at the point where the arms attach, then you can tie the position of the arm layer to the position of the puppet pin using an expression. This will attach the layer to the puppet pin, allowing you to move the pin and the layer it is on and have the arm follow. So say your body layer is called "Body" and it has a puppet pin called ...

I can't give you specific commands but since these are fairly short I'd extract the individual frames into a TIFF stack (or similar), then import them at the correct (7fps) frame rate into your editor. Then I would apply twixtor or an open-source equivalent to raise the frame rate. How well those work depends somewhat on the amount of motion. 7 fps to 30 fps ...

You place pins at the points where the joints meet, and at the ends of the limbs, then move the pins around using keyframes. AE warps the image to make it look as though you've animated the whole image... Not always brilliantly.. If you have the limbs on different ...

Another option if you don't want to create a pre-comp: Make your mask and set the keyframes and apply this expression to the mask path property: valueAtTime(time % key(numKeys).time) This is basically an implementation of the loopOut function, but it works for all properties, including custom ones like mask shapes. How it works: valueAtTime returns ...
