Should I deadhead my ground roses and what is the best way? Actually I forget the specific name, they grow out along the ground as well as upward on their stalks.

Based on your description I think you are growing one of the landscape groundcover roses. These do not have to be deadheaded, however they will rebloom better if you do so. To do the job, you can trim off each flower one by one (a huge task) or you can lightly shear the overall plant (much quicker and easier). Enjoy your roses!
