Aside from the skates obviously your gear should be pretty much interchangable between the two. You may want to consider having different sticks for roller and ice because you can wear sticks down pretty quickly in roller.

As far as the pants/girdle issue its all about personal preference. Personally I use pants with a shell over them.

As for the helmet I use a cage for regular leagues and take it off for shinny and whenever else I don't need to wear it and usually have no problem adjusting, but if your just starting out I would suggest wearing the cage especially if you playing with a bunch of other new guys who might not be able to control their sticks too well. Then as you get more comfortable either take it off or get a visor
