no, you do not need your Sims 3 disk, but you will need the disk for the expansion pack you want to install.

Installed the Sims 2 but lost disc. I want to buy expansion pack. Do I need the Sims 2 disc to play the expansion or just the expansion pack disc?

all you need is the expansion, first you install it and then every time you want to play the game you put in the latest expansion disc you installed

Do you need Sims 2 to play all the other Sims 2 games?

If by "other games" you mean the expansion packs, then yes. In order to install the expansion packs (Sims 2 University, etc.) you need to have Sims 2 already installed. If you don't want to spend money on that game as well as the expansion pack, find a friend who has the Sims 2 discs, and borrow them. Install the game and then install your expansion pack right afterward. That way, you don't need the regular Sims 2 disc to play with your expansion pack. You just have to have the disc for the expansion pack you installed. (However, if you ever have to uninstall the game, you'll need to borrow Sims 2 again to reinstall it.)
