I need to know how to write a path to a symbol that is not at frame 1 of the timeline.  

Say symbol 'xyz' is nested within symbol '123' and 'xyz' is actually on frame 20 inside of symbol 123.

I'd do...

  _root.123.???

How would I reach that symbol (xyz)?

I'm not sure that you can I'm afraid - unless the nested movieclip is currently on frame 20, or there is an (invisible) instance of the nested movieclip on frame 1.

You can also set a variable to decide how the movieclip on frame 20 should behave when it appears too though.

Do you think using a scrollPane and just adding a .swf file with the movieclip through that is a bad idea?

Not necessarily, although I'm having some difficulty picturing what you mean by that.
