For example, for a cork Bs 5 you would have to start spinning backside while you go "under yourself". Bs rodeos include spinning "over yourself" in someway. It's quite hard to explain. Watch Jed's Bs cork 5 tutorial and you get the idea in corked spins. (Btw, props to Jed for the tutorial, helped me getting the puzzle pieces together)

The flip in a rodeo counts as a 360, so when you back roll 180 it's called a rodeo 5. So if you triple then you already do 1080 worth of flip, then you just have to incorporate a 360 into it and bam triple rodeo 1440. Same goes with underflips (underflip 540). It does get complicated and the fact that announcers rarely even know the tricks themselves doesn't help (saying a cork requires inverts when it really doesn't)
That shows it well (sorry if no link iphone doesn't seem to like links)

Oh god, I really hope this doesn't turn into one of those "No he's doing a rodeo!" "No he's doing a backflip 540 rotator flip superman!" "No you see at the start he dips his shoulder so it's actually a wildcat fireman hose gyrator flip!"
The flips/inverts really start to overlap and get confusing beyond their basic definitions once you start adding extra rotations.

Rodeos are 540 or greater. It's slightly different than just a back roll with a 180. ( that's technically a 90 roll ) more of a off axis wild cat.
A YouTube videos show it best.

Cab is switch fs 3
A rodeo is typically a back roll with a 180, but it doesn't have to be just a 180. A good example is I think max Perot(?) who did a triple rodeo.
Cork is an off axis spin, whereas rodeo is a flip with a spin. In a cork your legs don't have to go over your head, it's just your spin is off axis. A rodeo your legs have to go over your head (from what I understand). If you watch a bunch of clips of both you'll start to feel the difference, rodeos look much different from corks, even though it's hard to explain. And when you start doing them, you'll feel the difference. Till then I suggest just looking at clips of corks and rodeos and seeing the difference.
tl;dr: cab=switch fs 360
Rodeo=flip+spin(usually a back roll+180)
Note: a cork is not a spin with a flip, it's a spin which "corks" off axis.
Edit: it was Kyle Mack who did the triple rodeo youtube.com/watch?v=JW-dD7hCKvU

Cab is actually a FAKIE BACKSIDE 360. But since snowboarders mostly pop their tricks (off pipe and jumps), a cab becomes simply a fs 360 switch. Half cab is 180. And anything more than 360 just gets called by the rotation angle.....
To make more sense:
Fakie = going switch and doing an ollie off your front leg
Switch = going switch and doing an ollie off your trailing leg
but snowboarders pop with both legs, so that gets thrown off....

Right on with the cab...
I believe a rodeo is incorporating a spin, whether it's a frontside or backside, with a barrel roll in the same direction as the spin.
Aerials are always confusing...wildcats, corks, rodeos.
