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.

Yes. Most people are using monitors with an sRGB gamut, and many browsers assume that the image is sRGB, so you should output your processed image to the sRGB color space. Only use Adobe RGB if you are planning to print, and even then only if you know a lot about printer profiles etc.
