  What's a "role" ?

  I think you're missing something fairly large here.  You're talking about concepts.  RADIUS doesn't deal with concepts.  It deals with attributes.

  So... you need to decide which attribute will contain this "role".  You need to decide how to determine which user gets which role.

  Then, configure that in FreeRADIUS.

  When you ask vague high-level questions, the only response you'll get is vague high-level answers.

  If you want more detailed answers, ask more detailed questions.  You've already been told this.  So there's no excuse.
