Are there not Rabbinical prohibitions in place as well which include their own punishments for transgressing?

comment Why do Sephardi jews put on the tefillin shel yad while sitting?
Yalqut Yosef, Siman 25, Note 68 writes that the source for this custom can be found in the Zohar HaQadosh, Parashat Hayei Sarah, Page 132 beginning with "תָּא חֲזֵי, צְלוֹתָא דְבַר נָשׁ מְעוֹמֶד..."

comment Genesis 39:20 Potiphar's prison
This appears to be derived from Genesis 39:1 and Genesis 40:3. 39:1 states that Potiphar is Sar HaTabahim. 40:3 states that the baker and cupbearer were placed in the house of Sar HaTabahim where Joseph was jailed. I still don't see any specific hint to Potiphar's basement.

I don't know. That's why I asked, because I thought your answer could benefit from a source. If such an interchange would be better suited as a question and answer, I'm happy to pose it.

How do we know that "Chelev in Halacha refers to certain fats"? The pasuq only says חלב.

See HaRav Mansour's derashah here @ 19:15-19:56, specifically 19:30-19:40, where he says "the ladies did not accept the Lashon HaRa' of the spies".
