See HELP <race> (such as HELP DWARF) to learn more about a given race, and its bonuses and maluses.
The choice of species is almost entirely cosmetic, and has no effect on gameplay. The notable exception to this rule is the Elf race (called Edhel in their own languages) - the Moredhel and Eledhel are considered quite distinct from one another. See HELP EDHEL for more information about the warring tribes of the Edhel.
