Sunroom removing load bearing posts

I'd like to remove one or two of these posts... They go from the floor to two joined 2x12 beams. There is an actual shingled roof above, so the roof is heavy. Any advice on how to approach the project? Should I just eliminate 2 posts? Should I eliminate all and replace them with something bigger than a 3x3? Any advice appreciated.

I've tried to reach out to contractors and nobody seems interested. Pictures should be attached for some reason I don't see them.

You can't remove any posts, they are there for a reason.

I imagine I can if the remaining posts provide sufficient support for the roof and/or I replace the 2x12 with a different material. Your post also assumes whomever did this knew what they were doing. Thanks, though.
