Revamping control system

I'm looking to update my control/valve system (if possible). The controller is a K-Rain Hydrotek 2114. It seems very bassic in that it simply cycles on/off on given days at given times. For every time I manually cycle it on/off it goes through 1 of 6 zones. When I want to run certain zones only, or test certain zones, I can't do it (or I havn't figured out how).

Replace sprays with rotors on small yard patch?

My front size yard has 6 spray heads, 3 on each side of the yard. Would there be any benefit to replacing the 6 spray heads with 2-3 rotors?
