    I have no idea what the landing fees might or might not be but there are two FBO’s based at LAX, Atlantic Aviation (go figure) and Landmark Aviation, that can support GA.  True, you’ll probably find more business jets at LAX but they can support a single engine 172 as well.  Best bet to find out what FBO’s are available at an airport is to visit AirNav.com.  For LAX you can see at http://www.airnav.com/airport/KLAX

    If I wanted to get to the ramp after landing, I’d taxi there.

    “If I wanted to get to the ramp after landing, I’d taxi there.”
    Maybe just taxi down the local interstate and avoid flying there all together? Avoid those silly ATC folks and give me something funny to laugh at on the news. 🙂
    OP: Expanding on what Joe said, once you have the FBO just give them a call. Flying the Seminal into Logan required a simple phone call to give the FBO an ETA. There may be certain procedures you need to be aware of, but the FBO folks should be able to give you any necessary information. 
    I say, go for it! It was a blast and a great learning experience. If you can handle these radio calls you’re ready for just about anything. For an instrument level or higher, IMO, it is well worth the 100ish it will likely cost for landing/ramp fees.
