what is the difference between
 rake db:migrate VERSION=0
rake db:rollback

the only one i have seen is first one always works and second one
gives error sometimes. .....but i guess both try to do the same

rollback goes back to the previous version. VERSION= enables you to jump
at any spot in time. But if I recall correctly you can also pass an
option to rollback so that it rolls back more than 1 step, but I have
never used it.
