I am a contractor and house designer. i do the math to calculate these beams and trust me, what you are looking to put in to replace the post would be very big and heavy. It may require you to add mor support to the exterior walls and may take quite a lot of headroom.

If it is a garage, it is often easier and cheaper to have a company design and build trusses that require no beam and do a rehab, ripping off the old roof and putting on a new one.

I’m not joking about it possibly being cheaper, either.
