ok, does a prohibition d'rabbanan mean that a Rabbi has prohibited that activity? if so, does it really have the weight of Halacha or Torah prohibition?

Yes, it is the halacha but it is not a torah prohibition. But halacha is divided between halacha from the torah and certain other rabbinic prohibitions. This is not like a prohibition from your local rabbi, it's from the rabbis of the talmud.

and what Torah prohibition might be in violation depending on where he was?


If he was in a true public domain it would be a violation of the torah. Most rabbinic laws put up barriers to prevent inadvertent violation of torah prohibitions.
