    If your unit is part of the HOA, then yes

    If it is in their rules, yes they can.  Go read your copy of the rules, but make sure you have the most up to date version.

    Depends on the HOA bylaws but potentially, yes.

    Yes, it can. HOAs are intended to maintain a uniform appearance on the exterior. Being able to keep anything you want on a patio or balcony flies in the face of uniformity.

    HOAs can do pretty much whatever they want.  A common prohibition would be prohibiting towels from balconies in resort areas.

    Yes when you are talking about an HOA  the deeds have restriction meaning by living there you are giving up certain property rights usually in exchange for having uniformity within the community

    Residents of a building or neighborhood must abide by the governing body, if there is one, of that neighborhood or building. So, yes. If you don't like it, get elected to the HOA board and change the rules.

    That would depend on the specific HOA regulations, as many such issues are specific to the HOA in question. HOAs can have rules over many things, but they don't have to, if they decide otherwise.

    The only specific answer for you is to ask that specific HOA.
