How do i do away with the rosettes in the ceiling?
Can you completely do away with the rosettes in the ceiling? I was thinking of doing a 2×3 across where the panels meet like a "farmhouse" look. (By cutting a 2x6 in half and staining it) But do I have to do something in replace of the rosettes I plan to take out? A flathead screw or washer maybe?

How do I repair a large hole in the ceiling?
I want to remove my old swamp cooler vent and repair the hole so it looks like the rest of the ceiling. My ceiling is textured (not popcorn) like plastering.
Are they plaster? Wood? Vinyl? Could you provide pictures?🤔
Hi Stevie, rosettes are purely for decorative purposes so you should have no problem removing them. Depending on what you're ceiling is mad of you can either use polyfilla to fill the holes or vinyl spackling. This tutorial will help you do that - https://homeguides.sfgate.com/patch-hole-ceiling-37698.html
I think you are talking about the nail or screw pops in the drywall. They should be removed and new ones put in an inch or so away then everything spackled over. Your idea of putting a 2x3 faux beam over the nail pops should provide the necessary support.
They can not just be removed but must be replaced.
Here are some references for the repairs.
It is hard to tell if they are decorative or not from your picture (thanks for taking and posting a picture), I would try removing one to see if it is a functional part of the ceiling and there for support. If it is serving a purpose, the beams should do the trick for support.
You'll need to fill in the holes after they are removed.
The rosettes you are referencing are holding the panels in place. You can swap out for screws and then replace wood over that. If you want to put beams, they will need to be hollow and leave the rosettes as is.

If this is a modular home or a trailer home, they can’t be taken out, as they hold up the ceiling panel.
Any new things you attach to the ceiling will have to attach to the ceiling joists and you’ll need to determine which way they run and their spacing,
as well as verifying if they’re wood or lightweight steel.
These are ceiling rosettes, also called medallions.
They should easily pop out- try using a putty knife to get under them.
Ceiling Panels with Rosettes
One of the most common mobile home ceiling designs uses 4-foot wide ceiling panels screwed into the roof trusses every 24″ or 16″ (the typical space between the roof trusses). A flat plastic trim covers where two seams meet and rosettes are used on the trusses in between the seams.
Rosettes are decorative washers used on the screws to attach the ceiling panels to the roof truss. They are screwed into every roof truss except where two panels meet. In the image above, the rosettes are used at 16″ intervals on a 48″ wide panel (meaning the trusses are 16″ apart). A batten, also called a spline or strip, covers the seams where two panels meet.
Remove the rosettes and repair the ceiling. Farmhouse in my experience has been tin ceilings which you can buy from Lowes, or they have plastic panels that look like tin ceiling tiles that you can paint. Or old-fashioned beadboard ceilings were popular in farmhouses - they sell 4 x 8 beadboard panels, or you can simulate with with even pallet wood.
