I have a 1.0 motherboard and was trying to clean the solder from the holes thoroughly and ended up stripping all of the metal inside one LPC point. Meaning, I can't fill the hole with solder and the trace on top ends at the edge of the hole attached to nothing. Is it possible to fix this in some fashion?

you might want to try putting in a very thin thread all the way through and solder this on both sides of the PCB (only when on both sides is a solderpoint. If it is at one side of the board you could scrape of some lacquer of the trace and solder it to that. BUT: this is very delicate so you use good materials and equipment. It is possible!
