If you squash a cockroach will this spread its eggs?

Definitely not! Cockroach eggs are contained in a case called an ootheca and if this is damaged the eggs inside will die. Some cockroaches deposit the ootheca soon after it has hardened, a few carry it until it hatches, and others incubate it inside their bodies until the eggs hatch.
