Tar and Gravel Replacement

Hello all, My name is Kyle, and I recently bought a 1953 home in Las Vegas. The roof is not flat, but does have a low slope. It is tar and gravel. (mostly tar) Over the years, it seems past owners patched and repatched the tar. Now the tar is very thick. Its even taller than the flashing, so every time it rains, it rains gravel. I have a couple leaks, so I want to reroof. I am one of those period weirdos though, so I would like to keep the look of the tar and gravel. What is the best way to go about this? Should I just cut the roof off in segments and check the supports while I'm at it? And how do you work around the air conditioner?
