Can you roller oil based poly?

I bought this to finish my floors, Minwax oil based poly. On the can it says to use a brush or synthetic paint pad, it says not to roller it. But I have understood from others that oil based poly is in fact ok to put on with a roller. Is it?

The can also says no need to sand in between coats. Trying to understand what is the best protocol to follow...

I have raw pine floors, we will stain them with oil based stain then poly. Should we use 2 coats of poly or will we need three?
