Are there people in Haiti who spoke rough with heavy r, p, t, and d consonants? If so what region would you say they would most likely be found? If a person speaks creole "heavy" or "well-pronounced", does this mean that they are speaking with a Frenchified accent? What does "ou ap pale kreyòl yon ti jan lou" mean? How could I correct that?

I’m not sure I understand what you mean by the “heavy r, p, t and d consonants”, but it’s usually a foreigner who ‘pale kreyòl lou’ which means to ‘speak Creole with a heavy accent’. 
We do find northern and southern accents in Haiti as well as regional differences in word usage. We have so many variations in word usage in different parts of Haiti, some we know about and others we haven’t heard of yet, that there would need to be some research or study done so that we can identify them all.
