I study a textbook in Discrete Math 7e Rosen , I am in ch.4 Number Theory
Mainly for computer science improvement (cs)

Is it ok study same time a Probability & Statistics textbook again for cs...?

I have background in Calculus I II and Linear Algebra & web development.

What do you mean? If you can handle it you can study as much as you like. Whether it pays off in CS heavily depends on what you're going to do there. Research, industry (which branch) etc.

Again, it depends. The platforms don't define the applications! Discrete math is probably better for algorithmic and numeric problems, statistics for what it says, e.g. to evaluate data as polls, visits, etc. But if you will deal with large amounts of data slim algorithms might be very useful. However I doubt you could find them in a math textbook about discrete mathematics. Some IT book about algorithms might be more suitable.

So for general purpose Apps - not games - like CRUD Read insert update delete data from server, and also social logins and social Apps, ...

This study should help or make my way easier? AGAIN what is best finish Discrete Math after study Stats?

Ok. But that's my very personal opinion and life experience. Neither. IRL you almost always will be confronted with something that is new. Statistics are closer to reality since it widens your possibilities. And if you do it right you will learn what statistics quoted in common debates are worth: nothing. Statistics will you provide a better understanding of data which can be very useful when programming apps since sooner or later you want to know things like: who uses it how often and where etc. So the gain is bigger on this side. (The discrete stuff you can learn when and if needed.)

In this case finish it before you start something new for otherwise you likely won't anymore. But you can do both simultaneously since it's quite different stuff. If you get bored by one you can read the other and vice versa.

Yes, it is ok to study discrete math and probability theory at the same time. You don't need one for the other. You might want to get some of the basics of calculus 3 before doing some more advanced probability theory though.
