Lossless avi (with or without alpha) is a good option for an "intermediate" type workflow.
I have no experience of exporting a PPRo Project from AEFX.
You may want to read up on "Dynamic Link" also if you have that option with your CS3 version.
>My understanding is that a "project" is not a "file", but a collection of files.
Actually the 'project' is an XML file that refers to a collection of files. But it is itself an independent file.
>(Can a "project" be imported in a project" ??)
Yes it can.

Thanks to all of you.
Another question: is there a way to "export" (or any way to get a trimmed version of a footage - (the part within the *in and out* points dragged to the Timeline) so I could only take this part to AE ?
I tried to take a 3 minutes footage (in which I need 3 cuts of just a few seconds...) into AE to apply a tight junk matte technique I found on Creative Cow, but when I started to process I got errors (memory) messages and all the system freezed so I had to shut down Windows... My first hands-on experience with AE !... So I tought maybe I should bring in just what I need to retouch ?...
I don't think it is my system at cause: .Core 2 Duo 3.0 Ghz, 4GB RAM, Win Vista x64, SATA hard drives (7200).
In CS4 the dynamic link was expanded so you could go from PP to AE and
vice versa. In CS3 you can only dynamic link an AE comp into PP.
Your workaround is to render out the selected footage from PP into a
lossless format, QT Animation codec for example, import into AE, do your
work and then you can dynamic link the Composition back to PP (Just
place that link above the piece of original footage) and then if you
need further tweaks in AE they will flow through to PP.
