Is it ok if I believe the Greek/Roman gods are real?

Assuming you live in the civilized world, hell yes. Freedom of religion means you can believe any blasted thing you want, and nobody can stop you.

All Deities area an invention of mankind to fulfil some back up for the many problems that seem to occur to impede the process of the human race.The arrogance of mankind cannot let him believe that he is as insignificant as a weed in the field that will suffer destruction just like any other life form should conditions change.
Therefore, if the creation of an overseeing God gives you comfort and confidence, then that creation is right for you. Only an obsession in that belief will do you harm by stopping you thinking for yourself, and eventually turning you insane.

Many people still worship and believe in greek/roman deities including many other mythological gods. I'm part of facebook groups that are full of people who worship all kinds of old deities. If you want somewhere to start then look for this book: "Hellenismos: Practicing Greek Polytheism Today" by Tony Mierzwicki.
Occult theory behind the worship of gods and other things goes something like this: when so many people are investing their attention and energy into an idea it gives it weight and subconscious power and influence. The theory applies to figures like jesus or Muhammad, or venus the goddess of love, or even pop culture figures like iron man.

They are real and still exist in mythology and folklore.

Yes. In a way, they are just as practical as the Christian, Judaist, and Islamic god is since they all are depicted as humanoid in appearance. Should you believe that mythical characters such as pegasus, the kraken, centaurs, cyclops, the minotaur, or the gorgons existed, no. That is kinda pushing it since they were in fact characters from legends and stories during that time period.

Why not? There is as much evidence for them as there is for any of the other gods and they are a lot more fun than the Christian god.
