Why are some people not allowed to use the Rio2016 hashtag?

The average person can. The Olympic committee banned all commercial non-sponsors from using the hashtag, or even making certain tweets about the Olympics this year. They advised if a company is sponsoring an athlete, but do not have an official sponsorship with the Olympic body, they cannot use copyrighted words and phrases such as Olympic, Olympian, Go for the gold, #TeamUSA, or #Rio2016. They have also been banned from referencing results or retweeting anything from an official Olympic account. They are also not allowed to mention Olympics in conjunction with any Olympic athlete that they sponsor. The athletes are also not allowed to publicly thank the companies that sponsored them. Oiselle was ordered to take down a photo of an athlete, because it had a small Olympic ring icon under her running number, as they said it was a copyright violation. The Olympic committee is accusing these companies of ambush marketing for using these hashtags. These companies are accusing the Olympic committee of being overly aggressive and bullying for not allowing it.

If you are an Olympic athlete do you have to be born in the country you play for or for example if you are Canadian and you get your American Citizenship can you play for the US in the Olympics?

There is no rule that says an athlete can only compete for the country in which they were born but there are some situations brought up in the Olympic Charter that would disqualify an athlete from competing for a country that they were a citizen of.Rule 42 of The Olympic Charter states that the International Olympic Committee has final say over whether an athlete may compete for a particular country. Section 1 states that an athlete must be a 'national' of the country they are competing for but, should there be a dispute, the IOC Executive Board shall resolve the dispute.By-Law 2 of Rule 42 states that an athlete who has represented one country in the Olympics and then becomes a citizen of another country must wait three years from the time they represented their old country before they can represent their new country.Click on the "Olympic Charter" link below to about the rules. Do a find on "Rule 42" to read the specifics about citizenship, or nationality, of athletes.
