If I take photos in RAW format, and want to post them to the Internet, should I convert the photos to sRGB format? At what point in the post-processing should I do this? Thanks.

Basically you don't need to convert to anything unless you want to post it or print it.   So when you need to share you'd save a copy, or directly export, the RAW image as an sRGB JPG.    The JPG copy is redundant to save/store, in that you can make a sRGB copy of the finished image at your whim.
