This is Ronaldihno's signature move, commonly known as the Elastico. You use the top part of your foot to drag the ball sideways and then you cut it inside using the same foot.

Yes, that is called an elastico. It is in the tricktionary as an intermediate trick. Look at these two guides dedicated to learning the move:

Start by standing still, so you can learn the technique and motions, then learn it off the dribble. It can take anywhere from an hour to a few days to be able to do it consistently standing, but it can take longer than a week to be able to do it off the dribble. And even then it can take weeks and months before you truly master the move.

I don't think he's talking about the Elastico. He's talking about where Ronaldinho has his back to the goal, a ball comes in on the ground, and Ronaldinho takes a touch with the outside of his right foot and the ball goes to one side of the defender and he goes the other.

He just pointed his foot down and let the ball chip itself over the defender and then ran around him...

In order to do this trick someone needs to pass it to you. While the ball gets very close to you swing at the very bottom of the ball almost hitting the ground with your toes. This will cause the ball to have backspin and go backwards. Right after you hit the ball spin around and you'll find the ball.
