A couple of basic things:
Sync photos doesn't do anything with the Camera Roll. Therefore you will likely want to import any pictures in the Camera Roll to the computer as described in http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4083 If you use the "If you have a Mac" or "If you have a xxx PC" methods iCloud will not be involved.
Once you have all of the pictures on your computer and arranged as desired (in Windows this would be in folders and subfolders) you can connect with iTunes and sync. Understand that after you have done the sync that the phone (other than the Camera Roll) will have only the pictures specified in the sync (i.e., any pictures from earlier syncs with different settings will be wiped out from the phone -- but should still be on the computer unless you manually deleted them there.) The sync makes the phone identical to the folders specified in the pc. After you have synced the phone you can then sync the iPad. Note that iTunes allows you to set a different set of folders to be synced to the iPad than to the phone and that it keeps that information for each device. If you want both to be the same you will have to manually set them that way.
Hope something in that helps.
