One thing that most home owners don't understand, although the NEC is quite clear on this, is that if the sub-panel is in a detached building, it gets its own ground. You don't run a ground wire from the main panel to the sub-panel. Rather, you run only the neutral and two hots, and bond the neutral to the ground within the sub-panel, then ground it to an 8 foot long rod pounded into the ground, or other appropriate ground.
This is all quite different from the sub-panel being in the same building as the main panel. In that case, you run a separate ground wire, and don't bond the neutral and the ground at the sub-panel.
As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

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.
