Repairing linoleum question

I need to repair a seam in my linoleum floor. The pattern mimics 12x12 grouted tile. The seam is along a grout line (in the pattern). The "bubbling" occurs on either side of the seam, i.e., it affects a section that includes two tiles in the pattern. I could cut out a section of 2-3" on either side of the seam, in which case the seam of the repair would leave a fine line across the tile pattern on either side of the seam. Or, I could cut out a much larger section that includes a full tile on either side of the seam. In that case, the seam of the repair would be within the grout lines of the pattern. Any advice as to which is the better route?

Also, the previous owners left a section of linoleum rolled-up. It's been rolled-up for years. What is the best way to get it perfectly flat?

Tough to tell without pictures. Unroll your linoleum and lay it out flat in the sun to loosen it up and make it lay flat.
