As I know the method used to calculate loads in energyplus is heat balance method which calculates the loads for space. It is not possible to show the results for walls or roofs separately as they are not calculated originally. However, if you would like to see the share of any part just make it adiabatic and then compare it to the original result. Regarding U value, with film means that the resistance of the internal and external air layers are taken into account.
