Whats the difference between a roofing nail gun and an ordinary nail gun ?

A roofing nail is designed to be easier to be removed, they have a smooth shank and wide head that hold down shingles. A siding nail has a ring shank. A roofing nailer is used to quickly pin down shingles across a roof, the depth at which they are drive in is generally shallower than a siding nail.
You can read a little more about roofing nailers here Best Roofing Nailer Shooting From the Hip Woodworking Tool Guide.

Hitachi roofing nailer shoots every other nail & doesn't sink the nails it shoots

i think you have two different problems , replace the feeder spring, and replace the oring on the driver piston. also make sure that the coil of nails is perfectly round if they are dropped or squeezed tool will not work right

Roof coil nails any diffrence

Internally they are the same, however the rnd has a semi clear cover to see the coil nails in the cannister (could be other differences but use same nail). There is a difference between brands of nails. Check with local code for required length and type (galvanized , stainless etc). Make sure that the wire that binds the nails together is not too strong and stiff. Some coils have soft copper that works quite nicely and others use a stiff steel wire that tends to pull at the coil and leaves a stiff piece of wire in front of the first nail preventing good alignment to driver. If you are going to depend on your nailer for daily work, order and have in stock upper bumper and cylinder seal. These parts will fail quite quickly. Other parts tend to hold up pretty well. Good luck

Why does my hitachi roofing nailler skip nails every 5-7 shots, and there is a leak in the back but o-rings are fine and nothing seems to be broken?

Try using it differently. It's more of a bouncing method than a pushing method. Also use good quality nails. Fix the leak it will help it recoil better.Don' use excessive amounts of oil.

My makita an451 roof nailer keeps shooting 2 nails I've tried 2 different brands of nails

Nailers that use strips of nails (one nail directly behind the other) will sometimes drive two nails at once and is caused by damage to the driver. The nails are so close together that the driver will hit the first and part of the second nail head. Coil nailers, as your an451, use nails seperated by welded wire making it very difficult the the driver to hit the second nail. Usually when a coil nailer shoots two nails, it is acutally the trigger valve that acutates twice (two very rapid fires). Two very rapid fires is caused by faulty trigger valve. I have seen a roofing coil nailer fire one nail and a second nail drops out of the gun. Caused by weak / malfunction of nail feeder or wire used to weld nails together is too thick.

My milwaukee roofing gun works for a couple hours but then it wont feed the nails properly so it doesnt fire the nails anymore. what can i do?

It's quite possible that the areas through which the nails move in the tool need to be cleaned and or lubricated with light oil such as WD40. Rust or dirt from nails can build up on surfaces in the unit.
Check your manual for details.

Fires the first nail and will not fire the second. But makes the hit on the wood, so I know it shoots but it's the nail that will not move into the chamber to go next. Oiled the parts and still the same...

Either the nail thingy that pushes the nails through is worn, broke, or shot, or you have the wrong nails in there and it is not grabbing them as it should, I think the part is broken on the inside, can't really tell without seeing it, but if it spins free, you need to check it out. Might be able to weld it. Or just replace it. Hope this helps.
