Why doesn't gravity play role on a ball when it rolls on a horizontal surface?

It does, actually. If gravity did not affect the ball, the ball would float off to space. Gravity keeps the ball attached to the horizontal surface while it rolls. But in that case there is no force which would cause it to leave the surface. It might not roll , but rather skim, because there would be no grip between ball and surface

Does temperature affect the bounce of a rubber ball?

Temperature does not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. Let's say you bounce a rubber ball on the grass. The result will be different then bouncing a rubber ball on a concrete surface. The result is different because you are using a solid, hard surface to bounce the ball with. But the temperature will not affect the bounce of a rubber ball. you can test it out for youself.
