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.

No. Any connections to the detached garage have to be after the main disconnect of your house panel. You have two options here. You can replace meter with a meter disconnect combo and have the main feed your house and add a breaker to feed the garage or You could install a 400 ap service and place two disconnects at the meter. one for the house and one for the garage. unless you are going to have a serious electrial load in the garage you sould just feed off the panel in the house for cost effectiveness.

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.
