Is it permitted to carry outdoors or cook on Rosh Hashanah?

Rosh Hashanah is governed by the same set of rules as all other major Jewish holidays of Biblical origin (with the exception of Yom Kippur which has its own code of behavior).

This means that yes, you may carry and cook on Rosh Hashanah. For more details, see Which activities are forbidden on the Shabbat, but permitted on Yom Tov?

Rosh Hashanah
The Jewish New Year. An early autumn two day holiday marking the creation of Adam and Eve. On this day we hear the blasts of the ram's horn and accept G-d's sovereignty upon ourselves and the world. On Rosh Hashanah we pray that G-d should grant us all a sweet New Year.
Yom Kippur
Day of Atonement. This late-autumn high-holiday is the holiest day of the year. We devote this day to repentance and all healthy adults are required to fast.
