Should I leave a shoot from the rootstock below the graft? presumably
some sort of lemon
Would I end up with lemonades and lemons?

As a rule anything below the graft is removed. Often the root stock is chosen for its hardiness or its ability to support a dwarfing plant.
I had a pair of Mandarins die on me and before I had dug them out they had sprouted and I now had 2 lemons, one that produces small but juicy lemons and one that produces very thick skinned ugly looking lemons but again very juicy. Now no amount of pruning or neglect will kill them and my wife has enough juice to see her through the year.
