The faster you cool food the better. It is best to use an ice bath to cool food quickly for freezing or refrigerating. An ice bath is: Put the food to cool in a shallow pan and put that into a bigger pan with ice and water. The ice and water level should go a little over half of the food pan. Stir the food a few times while it cools. This should take just a few minutes. Place the food after cooling in an airtight container to freeze or refrigerate.

Should you let chicken cool before putting in the fridge?

Yes, all foods that are to be placed in a fridge should be cooled to room temperature first. The reason for this is that if a large quantity of hot food is placed in the fridge it is possible that it could warm the fridge (and contents) faster than the fridge could cool the food and this would mean that other things in the fridge were not refrigerated properly (and may go bad). Similarly it is best to chill food that is to be frozen in the fridge before placing this in the freezer.

Should you leave rice at room temperature before putting it in the fridge?

You can put it immediately in the fridge or do what I do and let cool for maybe 20 minutes or so to prevent the excess condensation from developing in the fridge. Just do not leave it out for more than 2 hours or you run the risk of bacterial growth.

How long should cooked food be left to cool before placing in the fridge?

The main reason to let the food cool before refrigerating is so that it doesn't bring foods near it up in temperature. If the food is fresh from the cooking (boiling hot) It can safely sit out for an hour or so before putting it in the fridge. If your fridge isn't full and you can put the food on an empty shelf, you don't actually have to wait.
