1Of course, you can stay in the Colosseum. They converted the top two storeys into a luxury hotel with suites. At night, when the tourists are gone, they lay on shows in the arena which you can watch from the comfort of your triclinium while you munch on snacks made with garam. It's mostly animals but if you're lucky you get the odd Christian thrown in for free.
Failing that, there is a hostel in the West wing of the Pantheon. Be quick though, beds tend to sell out quickly.

4Very good idea from above villa Adriana especially in summertime when open air concerts, most classic music, is given in the near theatre. But you can alo rent just an appartment, called Insula in Ostia Antica, a township and port of ancient Rome, 30km outside of town. Modern comfort, latrines inside, not all rooms with a/c.

5The wording of your question is confusing. In particular, your use of the word "roman."
I can only think of one castle in Rome. It's a museum.
Maybe you meant "castles from ancient Roman times." But castles weren't built until the medieval period.
There are plenty of villas from ancient Roman times, but I don't know of any that are inhabitable.
This sounds like a job for Google: "Stay in an Italian castle" or "Stay in an ancient Italian villa."
Neither are likely to be as ancient as you're hoping--or seem to be hoping.
