Burner Knobs stcuk/can't turn
I had the same issue.
Take the lid assembly off and remove the metal shield over the burner controls.
This will allow you to remove the black cover that you see on the front of the grill and will give you access to the burner controls behind the knobs.
there is an almost diamond shaped metal piece with a screw in the top and one in the bottom that the know shaft runs through.. take note how it is currently positioned and then remove the screws and the piece of metal will come off.. dont lose the spring or lock washer.
you will now have access to the valve which is your issue. i sprayed some liquid wrench and i used a large common head screw driver to "beak" the valve to allow it to turn. Test it so you know which position to return the valve to and then put it all back together.

IS MY BACKYARD CLASSIC BBQ GRILL CONVERTIBLE TO NATURAL GAS?
Theoretically yes though it is so unlikely a conversion I would be surprised if the jets and mixing chambers are available from the manufacturer. Natural gas has a relatively low calorific value so a much larger volume of gas is needed than butane or propane.
I haven't heard of anyone commercially bottling natural gas though small scale private bottling is quite successful, harvesting natural gas (methane) from sewage treatment plants. In the absence of bottled methane the has would have to be delivered from the domestic supply via a flexible hose or a permanent metal pipe.

How to convert my jenn air 720-0099 natural gas bbq to liquid propane
I think natural gas (or methane) barbecues are quite thin on the ground and most use either butane or propane.
The jetting for a natural gas appliance is quite large due to the gas being a particularly or relatively low calorific value.
There isn't a huge difference between the jetting of the butane and propane powered appliances and considering a barbecue is designed to be used outside in free air, there is little point in the fine tuning for perfect combustion and so the two gases can be considered interchangeable in most instances and certainly most people running a butane appliance on propane find it more satisfactory in all aspects especially when the temperature falls and butane freezes in the cylinder, propane doesn't.
When buying a propane regulator I would tend to opt for the adjustable type due to the added versatility, can be used with a blowtorch for instance...

How to replace barbecue lighter
In order to change your ignition case, you need a new one. There are two options here, the first and better one being to find a dealer who offers an exact match of your current, original ignition box. The second option is to buy a universal ignition kit. No matter which one you pick, here are the steps to carry out the replacement.
Unscrew the visible front part of the button/switch (you may need a wrench)
The ignition housing (probably box-shaped) on the backside of the control panel is now loose – bring it closer to you, so you can see well the attached wires (maybe 3 or 4)
Look carefully at the way wires are connected to the case and remember it, then disconnect each of them
Take the new ignition case (replacement kit) and plug-in wires to the appropriate ports
Put the new BBQ ignition casing where the old one was
Align it well and screw back the front part of the igniter button
