Is it legal for a citizen not working in LE to trace web postings to IP addresses? and/or to trace the IP address to a physical location?

an ip lookup will give you a general area not exact address for legal reasons

Depends on why you want to do the reverse trace.

why would the reason matter?

If your doing it to stalk, harass, or any other criminal act it is illegal. Doing it because you want the info it is legal!
