When did the mission emblems for the Apollo flights first make an appearance? Was it at the rollout, or at a press conference?

Apollo 15 and Apollo 16 rollout photos show the mission emblems on display.

Most, if not all, were released well in advance as indicated by the photo release dates:

Apollo 14: September 1970
Apollo 15: May 1971
Apollo 16: November 1971
Apollo 17: September 8, 1972

The KSC photo release date for the Apollo 11 emblem is July 8, 1969. The emblem can be seen at the July 5 press conference in Houston. One photo shows Aldrin holding the mission emblem and Armstrong holding a replica of the LM plaque.

Was the Apollo 11 emblem seen at the May 14 press conference?

The Apollo 11 Press Kit has a photo of the mission insignia on page 16 with this note:
This photograph not for release before Saturday, July 5, 1969.
