Is there a way in a formaula to reference a sheet by number as opposed to by name

Create a Pivot Table on a Map
If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).

In VBA, yes. But I don't think you can without it.

I stand corrected! It ain't pretty, but it sounds like it works. I would probably go the UDF route (which uses VBA), just because it looks cleaner and is more readable, but that's just me...
