What is the role of a disengaged hockey umpire?

The engaged umpire is the one currently in control of play, normally because the ball is within their circle or 23 metre area. The disengaged umpire is, simply enough, the other umpire on the field, their coumpire. Their role is to provide asistance to the engaged umpire, to cover any areas of the field in which they are unsighted, and to maintain supervision of off-the-ball players. If necessary, the disengaged umpire should also focus on the timekeeping aspects (i.e. calling the end of halves) while their coumpire is distracted.

If a batsman is hit in the box and falls injured out of the crease can he be stumped out?

He could be, yes, though it'd be extremely unsporting. It would fall into the category of being 'against the spirit of the game' and the umpire would give the fielding captain the opportunity to withdraw the appeal, but if the fielding captain didn't, then the umpire would have to give the poor batsman out.

What is the role of a referee in netball?

Netball doesn't have referees they have umpires. Their role is to rule on the plays in a game. If an umpire controls the game very strictly it can slow the game down which can have an impact on the players and enjoyment to spectators. A good umpire will arbitrate on rules allowing some leniency, enabling a fast and smooth game...which makes for an exciting spectacle.
