What is the best rendering settings for sending this video with an email?

There are two ways to do this:
1. Render with H264 settings & downscale to produce a small video file (in Megabytes)
2. Upload to Youtube and send (share) the link as an email!

Can I render this project with a trial version of After Effects?

Since CS6, and now CC, trial versions include the cycore fx, so YES! You can edit & render the file even with the AE trial version!

Can’t find how to export in H264 codec

To enable H264 output in AE CC version: Go to menu: edit / preferences / output & enable checkbox: “Show depreciated formats in output module settings” Now you have the H264 output in your output settings!

To render in H264 format in AE CC2014 Send the composition directly to Adobe Media Encoder from After Effects (Composition > Add To Adobe Media Encoder Queue)

What if while opening the file I get “missing media files” error message. Is this normal?

No, if you get this error message, this means you have not decompressed the file right, or you have separated the project file (.aep) away from it’s directory.
All After Effects templates projects must be in the same directory with the “footage” folder too. So unzipp the file as is – do not separate the contents!
Check this image to see how a normal directory should look like after unzipping:
