Help with some Portugese

I just have a few questions about some Portuguese stuff, I only have experience with Spanish, and I want to be sure what I have is accurate.

That thee word for fox in Portuguese is 'raposa', and that, like in Spanish, ending in 'a' indicates a feminine subject, or if it something different. I have also seen 'megera' as a translation for 'vixen', is this correct?

That the word for small in Portuguese is 'pouco' and if there is an ending you add to words to indicate that something is very small, like the '-ito' ending in Spanish.

Also, would any of the words be different if it were the Brazilian dialect of Portuguese?
