That's a seedpod.  I usually remove them before they get that big so that the energy stays in the bulb.  You could try letting them ripen and growing them - it would take several years before you grew a bulb big enough to flower, I don't know how long.  I've never done it. 

Leggy Roses, how to resolve

I think your white rose is a climber - to encourage it to bloom the stems or canes need to be trained as near to horizontal as possible - this will encourage sideshoots which are the ones which bear the flowers.  Have a look at this video which explains it very clearly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o-o_FHPoEU

Can anyone tell me what this is?

It's fascinating but it is toxic - but then so are many plants in our gardens.  If you have children in the garden I'd pull it up now.  If not I would just make sure it's pulled up and bagged and binned before the seeds begin to ripen.  Wear long sleeves and gloves.
