Paulista is the person who was born in the state of Sao Paulo. Also we have the Paulista Championship (where play teams from Sao Paulo like Corinthians, Palmeiras, Santos, Sao Paulo etc)

Carioca is the person who was born in the state of Rio de Janeiro. We have the Carioca Championship (Flamengo, Fluminense, Vasco, Botafogo etc)

Many players put "Carioca" or "Paulista" after their names, like Marcelinho Carioca, Juninho Paulista etc

There are others like Gaucho (who was born in Rio Grande do Sul), Pernambucano, Mineiro, etc

Ah, and inho means "little"... Like Ronaldinho = Little Ronaldo..... Juninho = Little Junior......... Marcelinho = Little Marcelo etc
