Maybe a bit of a dumb question, but here goes:
I'm looking to repaint a room. Walls are easy, but my ceilings have a
rough/pointy texture, so I can't just use a roller like I do on the walls
(or can I?). How do I paint this type of ceiling without using a sprayer?

If there is a "special" roller it's worth a try, but speaking from
experience, a regular long-nap roller will work just fine.
Better not to "scrub" the ceiling with the roller or lay on the paint
too thickly, because sometimes the texture will soak through and fall
off in big globs. Also speaking from experience. Better to use two or
more light coats and let them dry in between.
I would probably just paint it with a brush... painful but effective.
You could try a roller and see how well it does, but you're probably
going to end up at least touching up with a brush.
