The easiest way to load JPEGs is to use 3rd party libraries.  The website http://www.puntoexe.com/develop.htm has a lib for handling JPEGs as shareware (the version on the left).  See www.jpeg.org for more details.

As for expanding to a bitmap without increasing the size, that can't be done.  JPEG is a compression standard and therefore has a compressed image.  Bitmaps just can't match the image compression levels since they use RLE.
