I have only found documentation about roles in MySQL through the use of Workbench, is there an alternative way to set them?

No. MySQL does not support roles (not even in 5.5). MySQL Workbench doesn't create roles as such but provides a role like interface to the model - the underlying code isn't creating roles but making direct grants to users.
