Explaining each type of the Cloud Services Roles separately. The Cloud Services has three types of roles the WebRole, WorkerRole and the VMRole.

As for each of the web role and worker role, each one of them require the developer to develop the application again from scratch. As for the pre-developed applications it requires a new type of roles the VMRole. This is simply a role where you can host the pre-developed application on it. Certainly you will also have to do the required configuration and the service definition to be able to host your application on the Cloud.

However, I wont need to continue a lot in the VM Role because simply it will retire and will no longer be available, you can migrate your existing VM Role to the Windows Azure Virtual Machine. Here is where you can find on migrating your existing VM Role to Windows Azure Virtual Machine.
