If I want to rent a house must it be in a commercial land or even in residential?

There are no zoning regulations in SL.  If you are on a private estate -- a homestead region can only be in a private estate --- the only thing that matters is the covenant that the landowner makes for the land.  And that is absolute.  If the landowner says that a parcel on the region is available for residential use, then it is.

The term you want to look for in the Covenant is "sub-leasing".  This means renting part or all of your property that you are renting from a landlord to a third party.  Some estate owners allow this, others don't.

As a practical matter, while you can do this for a friend or two, it's not a good idea to think that you can run a successful land rental business this way.  The reason is that, even if the estate owner allows sub-leasing, you're competing with that estate owner for tenants.  By the very nature of things, she can rent to tenants for less than you can.

P.S. It says "
do whatever you like provided that you respect the T.O.S. of Linden Lab
", and also: "
you may resell and sub-rent
".

So I may?

Do not know if this can be a profitable business.  I am investigating how do I breath and crawil in sl, who kows what the future will bring, a profitable business or an uproarious farewell?

 

There's your answer.  It sounds pretty clear to me.  Whether you can make a profitable business is anyone's guess, and it depends on what you consider "profitable".  Don't expect to become rich from any business in SL, but you ought to at least be able to meet expenses if you have a product that other people want. The healthiest approach is to treat your time in SL as vacation time.  If you earn a little L$, that's nice. What counts is that you're enjoying yourself.
