Protege 3.3.1 is pretty old. I would recommend either Protege 3.4.2 or
Protege 4.0 (these are very different editors). It is possible to use
Protege 3.4.2 to extract and search for information in an OWL file. You
mention using Protege with Jena but I don't understand your motivation
exactly. If you are writing code, then it would seem that Jena might
suffice. Perhaps most of your codebase is based on Jena and a small
amount of it will involve Protege 3? Then it would be possible to get a
Jena model from a Protege model but the other direction is awkward.

Protege 3.4.2 OWL is based on a w3 standard (OWL 1.0) and Protege 4 OWL
is based on the OWL 2.0 standard. OWL ontologies can be read or written
in Protege and these same ontologies can be shared with other OWL based
Protege Frames is based on an older ontology language. The Protege
frames ontology language is applicable in some situations where OWL is
difficult to apply (e.g. the closed world assumption but this is whole
different story). But the major disadvantage of the Protege frames
language is that it is not standardized and there is no semantics. I
think that the presence of a standard is very important and would
recommend OWL over frames.
