This is mostly over my head, so basic question: If I'm sharpening photos in Lightroom, is that deconvolution sharpening?  It sounds like deconvolution sharpening is the best way, so if Lightroom doesn't use that how else can I do it?

Lightroom/ACR's default sharpening is deconvolution, but it is rather weak.  You can try increasing the amount to intensify it, but the effect is still underwhelming, IMO.  As I have mentioned in an earlier post, Photo Ninja's deconvolution is outstanding.  DxO has decon that is supposedly matched for individual lenses, but I have not been impressed.  You can also use deconvolution at a later stage after raw conversion with Photoshop's Smart Sharpen, Photo Ninja or Topaz In-Focus.  There are probably other programs as well.
