A torero is anyone involved in fighting the bull. A matador is a torero charged with killing the bull. All matadores are toreros but not all torerosare matadores. Therefore, bullfighter is the closest synonym, although not an accurate one.

Toreador is the French equivalent of torero but the word is never used in Spain unless being sung in the Opera Carmen. A picador is a torero but not a matador.

Are you confused enough? If not, let me know and I will see if I can confuse the issue even more.
