If you first create an image object, you can then load a PDF into it (and choose page numbers dynamically). Dragging and dropping a PDF will always assume a PDF object (background) - this is still the case for compatibility reasons.

Then, for the variable number of extra pages:
You will have to create as many layouts as the maximum number of pages. Then, for each of the layouts, you can use this layout condition:
IF (OBJECT_EMPTY("objectname") = True, skip,print)

(Don't forget to adjust the object name for each layout condition).

The layouts that do not contain a page because there aren't that many pages in the PDF, will not be printed.
