This might be some help, though it does not seem to be exactly what you
are requesting.

1. `C-x 5 o' cycles among the available frames.  This is true even if you
use Emacs in a terminal (i.e., without a graphic display) - see the Emacs
manual, node `Non-Window Terminals'.

2. Command `select-frame-by-name' raises and selects a frame by name,
providing completion.  Again, this works also without a graphic display.
Frame names in a terminal are simple by default: FN1, FN2, etc.
Bind the command to a key, e.g., `C-a' as you suggested.  Then
`C-a TAB 3' takes you to frame FN3.
