From macro shots or there around to about 1 meter/ meter and a half away from the subject, since amphibians arent that big or to get a view of the terrarium/pond they are in.

Can I do this with one lense only?

Yes ... a "macro" lens can still focus at infinity (as any lens), but the added advantage that it can get much closer than ordinary lenses.

BUT ... there are two different versions of "macro" lenses, some are called macro but simply focus "closer" (allowing a Field-Of-View (FOV) of around 4", but a TRUE "MACRO" lens can get close enough for a 1:1 image, (about 1" FOV).

how do you photo stack images of live animals ?

Frogs, toads and snakes can be motionless for minutes at a time. I've done long exposures to even notice they were breathing. With in-camera focus stacking, it should be easy, if you had any reason to do it.
