There are systemic limits based on storage per block. So the limit isn't the number of transactions, the limit is instead the amount of data all transactions for inclusion in a block consume all together.
The definition of a "microtransaction" varies.
Bitcoin might be used to send a transaction without a fee if it is not a microtransaction. The Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client (and thus nearly all mining capacity) has special rules that if any outputs are under 0.01 BTC (currently about $5 USD), then it must include at least the minimum fee.
The minimum fee, when required, is 0.0005 BTC per KB of data.
In all likelihood then, all of your transactions would need to pay a fee.
However, simply paying a fee is no guarantee that a transaction will be included. The blocks have a limit of 500KB but as storage climbs above 250KB the fees needed for each additional KB increase. As space for blocks begin filling, those transactions with the higher fee will bump out those with a lower fee, which will need to wait to be included in a later block.
So to answer your question is not what the limits of the protocol, but what level of a fee in the future will be necessary for a transaction. That's something that is not known today, but most all will agree Bitcoin probably won't work well for transactions worth a fraction of a dollar especially if the value of the fee itself is in the "many cents" per transaction range.
Decentralized crypto currencies are decentralized to make them resistant to corruption.
But a decentralized currency can be used as the form of money on a centralized service. Most online gambling sites using bitcoins deal in bitcoin denominated microtransactions, and only use the bitcoin network whan a customer adds funds or when a user withdraws their funds. So that is an example of how Bitcoins can still be used for a service that deals in microtransactions.
Open Transactions is a technology that allows an issuer to receive bitcoins and issue bitcoin vouchers. Those vouchers can them be transacted on one or more Open Transactions servers.
Ripple is a distributed transaction system which might be able to handle your problem. Bitcoins are one of the types of funds that can be transacted.
