Yeah, 中国 means China (Zhongguo) and 中国人 means chinese person (Zhongguo ren). Ren 人 means person, so when you want to talk about somebody who is from somewhere, you write the country and you add ren

Yes, but in traditional characters. In simplified characters, 中国 means China and 中国人 means Chinese person.
