Try a blow dryer or heat gun (on low setting). Heat may soften the flooring (and maybe the glue) enough to then use a roller to eliminate bubbles. Be very careful not to get it too hot as the flooring will be permanently damaged. Start in an inconspicuous area to get a feel for the heat necessary then work from the middle toward the edges. It's worth a try ...
You can try poking a pinhole thru the linoleum and hope to vent it that way... If you'd gotten to this before adhesive had set the roller might have been able to work the bubbles out to the edge. Best, of course, is to eliminate them as the lino is being put down.
Floors don't have to be level for click-lock flooring, it just needs to be flat. Manufacturers will give you the maximum floor change per foot. I suggest that if you have small dips that are outside the manufacturers ranges you fill those with a self-leveling compound.
