When doing something like this

e|--19p15----------15----
B|--------15----15---------
G|-----------16-------------
D|---------------------------
A|---------------------------
E|---------------------------

Can you bar 15 on e, B, G or do you have to sweep like normal a seperate finger for each string?

That's known as rolling. Arguably the hardest sweeps to play clean are those that involve rolls. It takes a LOT of practice. I'd also say rolls are also the easiest sweeps to cheat at, which of course is bad. High gain can disguise shitty rolling technique very easily to most listeners.

There's not many lessons that focus specifically on rolling, but this is the best i could find..

Try to ignore the strong accent :P

This one is probably the best lesson though just because of the camera angle.

In my case I prefer playing rolled sweeps as string skipped arpeggios.
So
e|--19p15----------15----
B|--------15----15---------
G|-----------16-------------
D|---------------------------
A|---------------------------
E|---------------------------

Becomes
e|--19p15-------------15----
B|------------------------------
G|----------19-16-19--------
D|------------------------------
A|------------------------------
E|------------------------------

Both techniques are good depending on the kind of sound you're going for.

You can bar it and mute with your right hand if that's your thing. Mind you, it might not be your thing.

Nice angle, fine description, bad execution.
