Not sure where you want to slide that in. You can put file after file through one awk script; check the awk internal FILENAME variable to know which file you are processing; or have a statement like FNR==1 {i++} in your script to identify the file number.
You also can change the field separator on the fly: awk 'script' file1 FS="[]:]" file2 file3
