I enjoy tinkering, and am comfortable with the inside of the computer, but don't know where to start.

This seems to be a common issue. I personally think that your power supply has gone dead.
Does that mean you tried another power supply? PSU's supply power at different voltages on different rails and just because one LED lights up does not mean everything is OK with the PSU. It might be working on one rail and not on another, or not supplying enough power even though it appears to be working.
Unfortunately the power supply did not resolve the issue. There is still a light on the motherboard that comes on when I plug in the powercord, but when I press the power button on the computer I do not get ANYTHING (noises, movements, etc).
Is it most likely a motherboard issue at this point? Is there any way to troubleshoot a motherboard (multimeter, etc) without replacing it?

Try stripping down the computer again this time take out the backup battery as well. Leave it for a day or so then power up the computer without the cmos battery and see what happens.
It could be a bios issue.
