If I contribute to a Roth 401k, and then roll it over to this Roth IRA, after 5 years, would I be able to withdraw contributions from the (pre rollover) Roth 401k out of the rollover Roth IRA, without penalty or tax ?

Yes. Any contributions (and again, I'm talking about the $19,500/$26,000 type of contributions, not Mega back door after tax conversions) can be withdrawn tax and penalty-free, whether or not they are 5 years old. Any conversions can be withdrawn tax and penalty-free if that particular conversion was done at least 5 years prior.
