Sorry, but aren't you supposed to be pretty much natives in Romania? I mean, the Romans didn't commit a genocide or something. Sure the language is a result of Romanization, but so is french and Spanish. They are not similar to Italians (if you exclude the northmost of them) though by any means.

Is it generally believed in Romania that Romans are the ancestors of Romanians?

What you mean by "Romans" in such a context, inhabitants of Rome, Italic population? I am convinced that Romanians mostly descend from local populations, perhaps Dacians were actually the principal element, but if you refer to the physical aspect, living in a city inhabited by Romanians who came from all the parts of the country, I can say that physical appearance (stature, eye colour, hair colour, skin tint etc.) varies, we don't look all the same, though obviously there are some more common types.

Personal I think I am the folower of those latin speakers in balkans, who were between Diocletian and Justinian an important part of the roman empire population

It was used firstly to describe the Byzantine Empire, by it's citizens. The exact pronunciation was Rhomania (Ρωμανία) with the tone in 'i'.
