Are there any legendaries in sun and moon other than Solgaleo and Lunala? And if not could ultra beasts be replacing legendaries?

There are different classes of "legendary".  Type: Null and Silvaly are also legendaries, as are Magearna, Necrozma, and Marshadow.  Presumably, the Ultra Beasts are a new class of legendary.
The whole definition of legendary has been screwed over this generation haha.
TBH it has been for a few, not just now in Alola

A list of the Legendary Pokemon in Sun and Moon are:

  • Cosmog & Cosmoem
  • Island Guardians (Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini)
  • Necrozma
  • Magearna
  • Marshadow

And while Zygarde is available in Alola, it's still technically a Gen VI Legendary.
Furthermore, the Ultra Beasts are available although their Legendary status is disputed.

Hope I helped. :)

Keep in mind that even though Serebii does not classify Type: Null and Silvally as legendaries, the games' code says they are. Some people still debate this though, so it is undecided
Could you describe ultra beasts as pseudo-legendary?
Nope, there is a specific criteria for "pseudo legendary" that Ultra Beasts don't fit. They are their own separate entity.
magearna  and marshadow are mythical not legendary
