In a committee (legal title) that is an elected (members may actually appear on the primary ballot when more members qualify than there are openings) body representative of a State committee which has direct oversight , what participation can non members have in this body? Is this addressed by Roberts Rules of Order?

Under the rules in RONR, any non members allowed in the hall have no rights with reference to the proceedings and may be excluded.  See RONR (11th ed.), pp. 644-45 and p. 648.

Does Robert Rules of Order NR address non members of the above mentioned elected body holding leadership positions or chairing events over elected members?

There is no rule in RONR prohibiting this.  Bear in mind, however, that a non-member does not have the right to speak in debate or vote.
