Fobs which you purchased cannot be set to work on your car unless you do not have any of devices which can be gooked to your car diagnostic socekt and programmed to work on your car.

Metgod you described is working only when fobs are already programmed to your car and you change your batteries then you need to do resync of the fobs.

So in order to get your purchased fobs working with your car you would need to find any garage with programming tool for MGRover and ask them for a programming session. I expect that will cost you something, and at this moment I cannot know how much.
