Pops, You are right, I'm no professional:)
You are right again, I want a texture, not popcorn. Will try different roller and paint.
May try mixing mud with paint and roll it on to hide the flat, smooth, repair spots too.

If you want texture, you need to put on texture and blend it so it matches.
What it is sounding like you have is paint texture from years of paint build up with heavy nap rollers. To recreate that, you need to apply several coats of paint with a heavy nap roller.
What you could also have is a sand texture on the walls that has been over painted many times so it LOOKS like roller texture.
Like was mentioned above, without pictures, we are just guessing. FWIW, I think you should use the texture in a can. Do a couple practice sprays on some scrap cardboard to get the nozzle set up right and have at the wall. Nobody mentioned it but when it drys it shrinks down so your patch should look a little heavy and over done. If you screw up or the can clogs and splatters up the wall, just scrape it off with a 6" knife and start over. The cans let you redo things pretty easily, unlike many coats of paint or sand texture in paint.
