Cool? No, not at all. This is clearly a rip off. You could simply take a rose hip from any cultivated rose, extract the seeds, dry them on the windowsill, stratify by placing in a plastic bag in dry sand and placing in the fridge for a month, then sow the seeds and place back on the window sill. In a few months you may well have a whole bunch of seedlings. When large enough, sow these in pots. In a couple of years, you will have a number of small flowering plants, almost all of which will be different from each other, and different from their parent rose. You could then make up any name you choose, a bit like naming your dog or cat. If that makes you happy, so be it, but you won't need any fake certificate. These will be your own unique roses which may or may not be worth keeping.
