Does anybody know how to add a File Type Restriction in a Windows Share on FreeNAS

In other words, prevent a particular file extension like .exe or .bat is to be copied in to the share.

In samba, you can use veto files to prevent reading/writing some extensions. For example, you can use:

Veto files = /*.exe/*.com/*.dll/

to restrict access to exe, com, and dll files.
