Trying to learn about Roses - Suckers maybe!?

no, suckers can't come from above the graft.

the biggest things you can do for wildlife are dumping any chemicals and not being too tidy, (leave seed heads on, piles of sticks that creature can hide in etc) and accessible water, shallow for insects to drink. Lots of other things but that's a start.

Plant identification help!

The new stuff looks OK, that's the important bit. There are loads of species of cotoneaster from ground huggers to small(ish) trees
