```Trevor,

No doubt you will see many solutions. Here there are two of them.

This one works for any list of lists:

With[{z = Last /@ ls},
#2] & ,
{Replace[Most /@ ls,
n_ :> Sequence[100 + n,
-1], {2}], z}]]

And here is one for a list of lists of integers:

ls /. n_Integer :> Sequence[
100 + n, -1] /.
{a___, b_, c_Integer} :>
{a, b + c - 99}
