Image sequence particle animation

Hi there awesome blender community!
I have a problem i need to solve. I have just loved your support and am excited to hear what you have in terms of solutions

Its regarding using image sequences an an object for a particles.

I have an image sequence emitting from a moving object. The particle emitter is emitting an image sequence (hand drawn frame by frame smoke). Is it possible to have each emitted smoke sequence start to play out each time its birthed and then hold for a certain amount of frames.

I have attached a blend file .
test.blend (1.1 MB)

here is a mock up what i am trying to achieve

I hope this all makes sense. I have looked for answers. If anyone can steer me in the right direction that would be much appreciated. thanks!
