From Porto Alegre you can get anywhere else in Rio Grande do Sul by rental car, or by taking a guided tour. From Salagado Filho Airport you can take the Trensurb tram to the city center of Porto Alegre or get off in the Rodoviaria Station (Coach station) from which you can continue to many other destinations - the buses are pretty safe and comfortable.
