Question about Spanish (Mexico)

I hear these words a lot in spanish translations for movies but never hear anyone say them in real life. Can you tell me if the following words are commonly used in Mexicano and if not, what words are used instead?

Maldito - I guess it is used in similar was as damn or fu**ing in english, for example, "Esos malditos hombres, que hacen?"

Diablo - I think used like the word hell is at times used in engish. Que diablos quieres? What the hell do you want?

Tipo - I think used in a type of way like saying those type or those kinds, for example "esos tipos no hacen nada", those kinds of guys don't do anything.

Carajo - Seems to be used in a similar way to someone saying sh*t, f*ck, damn when they are angry.

Could anyone provide me with some examples of words that express the same meaning but are more commonly used? I am mainly around Mexican and Mexican American spanish speakers in the Texas region, and I never hear anybody here use any of these phrases.
