Withing/From/By Lima's theory/model, if the referential is a sexual being, it COMES UNDER the morphological regularity rule" Thank you so much!Please! Thank you

Yes, you can say "comes under a rule" (although I haven't a clue what the rest of your text means). Perhaps a more common way to express it is to say something is "covered by a rule".
