"a(n) =a1*n(3/2). "
This is correct indeed . Thats how i calculated the SMA and put it in the simulations .

There's a bunch of javascript calculators on this page:
http://orbitsimulator.com/formulas/
 
The 4th one down will compute your semi-major axis directly, rather than as a fraction or mutliple of another object's orbit.

No, it's only available on-line.  They're written in a different programming language, javascript, so the only way I could include them is to make them open in a browser window.

As Tony mentions the number of loops represents one of the number of the resonance .  
Here is a 3:1 resonance with increasing eccentricity 0....0.9.
