How do deal with sunken rooms and thresholds

How do deal with sunken rooms and thresholds

I am debating what model is right for me, whether a single Roborock vac with multi-floor support will serve my needs, or whether I need multiple robots.

SUNKEN ROOMS: My home has more than one sunken room. i.e., there is no door between the rooms, but there is a step down of a few inches. The robot could easily see one room from the other, but cannot navigate the step without being lifted. If I lift and "help" the robot over that step, will it continue to map that space as a single level that I can perhaps later divide into rooms for targeted cleaning?

THRESHHOLDS: My home also has several thresholds: a barrier that's at least an inch high that separates one room from the other (one is a little higher, see photo). The robot will have trouble getting over this. Can I "help" the robot do this for mapping purposes, then later divide the map into rooms for targeted cleaning?

If the above things aren't possible, then I'm afraid I would need to treat the home as 6 "floors" with multiple robots.
