But when a new chapter starts, those arabic numbers has to be on the middle of the bottom footer. How can I do this, I tried page brake, did not work!

It's been a long while since I did this, but you need to set your document up with sections, I think. One section for the Roman number pages, and one section for the rest. Then by looking at the dialog box for page numbers, for each section, you should be able to configure a different kind of numbers for each section.

If you find it does:

I, II, III, [...], X, 11, 12, 13

And it's not what you want, you can set the second section up to start at 1.
