Very generally speaking, police officers carry handguns because they need them for personal protection when they don't have access to a rifle or shotgun. Many police officers have rifles or shotguns in their cruiser, but it's very inconvenient to walk around with one of those all day.
It depends on the State. In New York State, Agents or Officers of a SPCA are Full Time Peace Officers with Full Police Powers. In New York SPCA Officers carry, the same weapons as any police officer, included but not limited to handguns, long guns (patrol rifle), Taser, Batons, OC Spray.

The one you're proficient with.
Well first off, if you have a pistol get a holster. A holster is around your belt at your side, and then a rifle at front. A sling with the rifle would be good because if you run out of ammo on your rifle, than put it on your back with your sling and take your pistol out.
Contact your local police to see if there is even a requirment.
There is no ONE best for everything. A great rifle to carry on patrol in jungle is not the rifle for making 1000 meter shots in a desert climate.
That varies between departments/agencies.
A hunter is a very easy costume to make. All he needs to do to make a hunter costume is to dress in camoflage and carry around a fake rifle. If he wants to get really creative, he could carry around a stuffed deer toy.
Yes, subject to Texas law on doing such. In most states, they must be unloaded and stored separate from the ammo. You need to email the Texas State Police to find out what their conditions are.
