Can I legally prohibit my existing residential tenants to carry out RBNB-type subleasing of my property via a lease amendment? I believe the county has not decided on RBNB legality (or is that under city jurisdiction?) Thanks
Your lease should address subleasing and you first need a lawyer to review your lease for such a clause.

Generally, yes as long as it is drafted properly. Restrictions against alienation (like subleases) are construed very "strictly" by the courts or you have be careful in drafting. You should have a good L/T attorney drafting your lease for you. Piecing together a Lease from forms and snippets off websites is not a good idea, and could cost you money in the long run.
Hope this helps.

Yes, you can certainly prohibit your tenants from subleasing your property. Make sure the language on your lease or lease amendment is clear.

If you are referring to AirBNB yes, you can do that. Many landlords are getting fined and violations due to this so you need to be very careful.

Yes - BUT only at the time the lease is initiated. Yet another great example of why you need to hire a Landlord attorney to address such issues.
