On a Ultegra/XT 9-speed chain that has lost a roller inside of a link and then has been separated using a standard chain breaker tool, and had the roller replaced from a piece of spare chain and then re-assembled with the same standard chain breaker tool be OK to ride on again? Or, is the integrity of the pin been compromised?

I noticed a missing roller on only one link in my chain that has maybe 30 hours use on a MTB. I can't see why it cracked and came off except that it did.

You should remove the pin and install the link thing.
You know the one that you press in then snap off the tip.
Reusing a roller off peice of leftover chain is fine as long as it is 9 speed.
