    When I plug my iPhone into iPhoto, a lot of random photos aren't on the photo roll (although they show on my phone) but they are on photo stream.

    Is there a problem, or something that I can change, I don't want to loose photos...

    No worries. Photo Stream is there so you can download the images. Just download the ones you're missing and you're good to go.

    (Keep in mind that Photo Stream only saves pictures up to 30 days.)

    It could be some photos that you deleted that went on photo stream. I know a lot of my photos that I deleted on my iPhone synced to my computer. I haven't figured out a way to fully delete photo stream photos from iPhoto. I've been trying to figure that out for the longest.

    I've just been right-clicking and hitting delete. Of course this doesn't seem to be deleting them from iOS devices. This should be fixed with 5.1.
