Yes, Stella is the heroine. I'm not sure what you mean by revelation in regard to Laura. She is Petrach's object of obsession and desire, which mirrors Astrophil's preoccupation with Stella.

After thinking about it, I suppose you could see the relationship between Petrach and Laura as a kind of revelation. Nice choice!
