so would it be wise to replant them now or leave them in a basket in my basement (warm) or garage (cold) until spring and then replant them? Unsure as to what kind of roses they are, other than one looks to be a bush and the others are stalks.

Sounds like you have a shrub rose and some climbing roses. It's too late now to plant as they won't get established before freezing. Keep them in a cool place and water sparingly during the winter. The roots should not be exposed to the air. Go ahead and plant them in pots for the winter.
