My rosy barbs are breeding apparently. We don't really have the equipment or motivation to seriously get into it, but I'm just curious: If the eggs somehow manage not to get eaten, get fertilized, and hatch, will the parents eat the fry too?

And will the african dwarf frog eat the eggs/fry too?

yes. most likely the eggs will get eaten, but if by chance they survive, the fry will get eaten.

Your ADF will probably eat them. If you see him eating the eggs, you might want to fast him the next day.
