Not sure if applicable, but I worked at a greek restaurant and they wrapped a lot of things in grape leaves. Looked like a line of sausages on a plate. Very durable and tasty too. Help ground beef without falling apart.

Romaine and red lettuce are my favorites for salads. I haven't tried making lettuce wraps yet.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.
It depends on what's in the roll. A roll made with brown rice, avocado, and different raw fish is definitely healthier than one made with white rice. Then again, both are much healthier than deep-fried rolls with sauces that are made with mayonaise.
The nori in itself varies depending on brand, but one brand contains 10 calories, 1 gram of protein, 1 gram of fiber, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 5mg of sodium, 8% of your Vitamin A, and 10% of your Vitamin C intake in one sheet.

There's a type called butter, Bibb, or Boston lettuce that's less crisp than romaine, but it's also slightly less nutritious. That's what restaurants usually use. I look for red or oak leaf lettuce, myself. It's not quite as easy to roll up because it's irregularly shaped, but it has a lot more vitamins and antioxidants.
