How should I correctly name a "featuring" in Brazilian Portuguese? or should remain "Featuring".
or which of these names should I use?
https://www.last.fm/pt/search/tracks?q=pesad%C3%A3o+IZA  and yes they are all of the same song

In Portuguese, the standard would be "part." instead of "feat.", as far as I know. The correct way according to MusicBrainz style guidelines is to copy the exact spelling (feat., featured, part., participação, etc.) as you see it on the cover of the CD (official track listing). The guideline also says that featured artists are entered in the artist/interpreter field next to the main artist.

I haven't found any official tracklist for Pesadão, but on the front cover I can see in the top right corner the spelling: "IZA ft Falcão"
So for example, correct tags would look like this:

Artist: IZA ft Falcão
Track: Pesadão

The downside is that Last.fm actually creates a special artist page for " IZA ft Falcão", so your scrobbles are neither counted for IZA nor for Marcelo Falcão, because it's unable to recognise multiple artist fields at the moment. However, adding artist names to the songtitle field doesn't make it any better.

in case I should always be guided by the list of the CD insert, right? the name of the CD that has this track is called "Dona de Mim" and there is:
Artist: IZA
Track: Pesadão (Part. Marcelo Falcão)

Como o G.G.B. disse, a LAST.FM não consegue reconhecer dois artistas separados se você colocar ambos na tag artista (o MusicBrainz, que é onde a Last normalmente pega as informações de álbum, já adotou isso, por isso alguns álbuns acabam ficando com as tags cagadas, por exemplo: https://www.last.fm/pt/music/%ED%98%84%EC%95%84/A%252B), então o certo é colocar na faixa da música. Para gringo você usa feat./ft. normal, pra artista brasileiro você usa "Participação Especial". Então, o certo seria "Pesadão (Participação Especial Marcelo Falcão)", como você pode ver aqui https://www.last.fm/pt/music/IZA/Pesad%C3%A3o+(Participa%C3%A7%C3%A3o+especial+Marcelo+Falc%C3%A3o)

As far as I know, Last.fm has no official obligatory tagging style guidelines, so you could handle it however you want. But since Last.fm is collaborating in parts with MusicBrainz, it's recommended to use the MusicBrainz standard (it helps a lot with decisions like this one).

These rules apply here:

1. The artist and song title are spelled like they are credited on the CD cover/tracklist. Also the connection phrase (ft / feat / featuring / part) is copied directly from the respective CD/album that you are listening. (Side note: Orthographic mistakes on the cover can be fixed if they aren't clearly based on the artists' intention.)

2. Artists and featured artists are moved to the artist field (and never to the songtitle), it doesn't matter how they handle it on the CD cover. 

So the song from the album "Dona de mim" would be tagged according to MusicBrainz style guidelines like this:

Artist: IZA part. Marcelo Falcão
Title: Pesadão
