I might be wrong as it's a long time since I did this..

I think you can forget the roller. Treat as a point. Yes convert the UDL to a point load.

It's not moving so both torques and translation forces sum to zero.

Edit: The answer is "interesting". Can't say more or it gives it away. Have a go and come back if stuck.

Yes, you can always convert distributed loads into their resultant point loads when finding reactions. So what is the equivalent point load for the distributed load and where is it located?
