Spray now, (Ignoring the licensing question)

First I would go in and cut off all the ferns first. Not only will you ensure that you won't kill any of them, but you'll open up the area so you can see what you are spraying.

With all the ferns knocked down, you will be able to easily tell where each plant is. The root mass sticks up out of the ground on a fern, so you'll be able to work around them.

Do it now while they are dormant. If you wait until spring, you'll have new growth that will potentially get applied with Round-Up, thus killing them.

To me there is no reason to add topsoil unless there is a grade issue. Just do your prep work, spray, and then add good hardwood bark-mulch to help smoother out any grass that has survived the spraying.
