Yup, closet homossexual would do.
(a) Closeted or in the closet as well.

An straight acting guy or girl/a closet queen (usually used to talk about guys here)
People use this to curse others, so in a mildly or not so mildly way (as in Portuguese as well):

hipócrita, falso - hypocrite
cínico, falso, dissimulado - cynical
introvertido, dissimulado - introvert, withdrawn (as in: a withdrawn nerd...)
escondido, dissimulado, encubado - as the above said (a).

These words have some areas of intersection in meaning (sense).

And more
recalcado (repressed, frustrated) one in crisis with ideological/ethical/ideological loyalties etc. Defending some values or actions, but thinking otherwise inside.

dissimulado - One that is able to supress his/her sensibilities in favor of an opposing worldview, doing that for personal gains from the status-quo.

Must have a one-word definition to (b), but I will leave it to the (more) experts.
