Limited slip distributes power nearly evenly to both rear tires. This prevents the tire with the least traction from spinning while the other does nothing, as with the more common open differential. Posi traction is AFAIK more like a fully locked differential which is a more positive way of doing the same thing. The ratios are a separate issue which determine final drive gearing, meaning that it sets up the engine revs at a given speed.

LSD was an option on most models until recently. At some point, they became found only on the ///M cars. I'm not sure if they can be ordered as an option these days.
