Is there a way to assign numbers automatically for all the frames?

An auto-incrementing field can be inserted into a frame. This will increment each time the frame is copied / duplicated. I know of no method to automatically assign incrementing numbers to existing frames.

or automatically assign numbered frames to each paragraph?

Again, the frame can be manually copied to each new paragraph, however regardless of anchoring method (to paragraph, to character) the frame will not copy along with the paragraph.

I have tried list numbering in the frames and numbered headings.

Simply pressing ENTER to create a new paragraph will also not automatically insert an auto-incrementing field or frame. As you correctly indicate, such behaviour is, in essence, an ordered list.

However, the numbering breaks up if I insert a new frame in between written paragraphs with numbered frames.

Please attach or link an example to the question showing this behaviour. Thanks.
