All depends on what type of equipment you are going to operate in the garage. I would suggest you call an electrician. You can connect to your existing 100 amp circuit if there is an empty spot for a breaker.

Can you install Electric meter on detached garage?

Question Needs Clarification!! If you are building a houseand you want the meter mounted on your detached garage to feed the house that is a question that your local utility or electrical inspector would hav to answer as it varies . If you want a meter on your garage that to would have to be answered by your utility as they have requirements about running service wires on residential property. they will probanly allow this as they usually charge more for having the service to a "commercial" building. The bse rate in my locality is twice that of a residential service. And even though it is your personal garage they consider it commercial in most places.

Do you need a main disconnect on the feeder wires running to a detached garage running from the box in the house?

You will need a breaker in your house panel to protect the wire feeders that supply the panel in the garage. The terminology for this setup is called a sub panel. At the garage end you will need a disconnect at that panel as the garage is not attached to the house. You might want to consider a 100 amp combination panel at the garage as it has a built in main disconnect and spaces for 12 or 24 breakers depending on the size of panel you select.
