The best way to connect 2 MIDI devices to a computer is a 2x2 MIDI interface.
(See the link below for an example)
If you decide to go with one MIDI port, try the following hookup :

Roland MIDI THRU to Computer MIDI IN

When you want to play the Roland sounds from the keyboard, and when
using the computer sequencer, set the QS to OUT1.
Check your PC Multimedia settings, see if external MIDI is enabled. (Control Panel).
Also check if your sequencer program is set to use external MIDI instead of the soundcard synth.
