I have an implicit function [e.g. $\displaystyle x+\frac{ln(y)}{y^2}=0$)]. Is there any mathematical trick/technique that can convert this to an explicit function (i.e. $\displaystyle y=f(x)$) even within certain restrictions and conditions.

No you cannot get y on its own when there is a mix of algebraic (squared) and exponential (log) terms. Except maybe in special circumstances.
