Hi there! Smile

To mount the iso files, you first need Daemon Tools Lite. Please, download that program and then take a look at this guide:
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Mounting_Guide.pdf

It should be clear what you need to do then. Good luck! Very Happy

Yes, we have The Sims 3 Base game, but it's also the exact same two ISO files. It can be found here:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

Unfortunately, you should mount them to be able to install them. But mounting is not hard at all, you just need to download DAEMON Tools Lite and follow the instructions from the guide. You can find DAEMON Tools Lite here:
http://www.daemon-tools.cc/downloads
Scroll down to the one that says "DAEMON Tools Lite 4" and download it.

The guide for mounting is here:
http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Mounting_Guide.pdf
If you don't understand the guide fully, then just tell us and we'll try to explain how to do it more clearly.

The Sims 3 Disk 1 and The Sims 3 Start Disk are not RAR files, they are ISO files. They should be mounted for a proper installation. So, please try it out and let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

No problem, we have a video showing the process to install the base game. Take a look at it here:

Oh, and I'm not an Administrator. I'm a Sims Helper. Just a clarification. Razz

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

Hi again! Smile

Yes, you can uninstall DAEMON Tools now if you already installed the base game and don't want it anymore. The expansion packs don't need to be mounted. 

And I'm sorry, but I don't really understand the last question. You can keep the iso files to reinstall the game in the future, but there's no need to "copy it from the ISO file". Just save the folder you got from the RAR and you should be fine.

I hope I understood what you meant. Very Happy

When you install expansion packs, they're added to the game. So, if you install more than one, all of them will be present on the game when you start it.  So, you are playing all of the expansion packs you install together, they are not separate games.
