Rye grass is already pretty thin so I don't see a need for a roller, just a normal deck should strip it easily

yes it will stripe to a decent degree. I don't get as pronounced of stripes with rye as I do with fescue, but rye does stripe much more than the southern grasses do...in my experience anyways.

can i put down fescue in LA during the winter months.(sorry about my knowledge of seeding)

I would stick with the rye grass for winter turf. That seems to be the best thing in our warmer climates for having green through the winter.

some say by october 15th, some say just after the first frost.

I'd say right now isn't a bad time in my opinion
