I tend to agree with increasing the amount of exercise- 5 mo olds have boundless energy that they don't know what to do with and need to get tired. Frisbees have become our prey of choice, then a hike in the woods, but I know most people don't have that kind of access. I'd also try clicker training some simple tricks, it really gets their attention and wears them out. I also agree with leaving him alone while he eats, but standing next to the bowl, that's what I usually do simply because I'm making dinner at the time. But I also have hand-fed when I felt like it, just so they know...
A prong collar has worked wonders for getting their attention and focus, but 5 mos is a bit young for that, maybe next month. Can't help you with the alpha roll thing- I think I'd end up laughing and tickling and get very spitty
