If Crobat switches in while Toxic-Spokes are in effect and uses Roost, will T-Spikes be cleared?

The answer is no.

The only way to remove Toxic Spikes as a Poison type is to switch in on the beginning. However, remember that Crobat is also partially a Flying type, meaning it is immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes. Levitating / Flying Pokemon cannot remove them, with the exception with Claydol / Baltoy / Delibird / Cryogonal with Rapid Spin. Using Roost would not remove them, because the ONLY way to get rid of Toxic Spikes as a Poison type is the switch into them.

The only way a Crobat can remove Toxic Spikes is when Gravity is in play, where Crobat basically loses the immunities it enjoys as a Flying type.

So basically, no.
