Question: Is there a way to add the Public IP field (which refers to the public IP transmitted from a load balancer or reverse proxy to pass it to the web server) within the "Worker Processes" section of IIS?

    This is impossible. only the original IP can be displayed in Processes. This involves the underlying code of iis and cannot be changed.

    Typically the load balancer pass this information via custom http headers. For example

    X-Forwarded-Host

    is the standard for the hostname. There is no standard for the load balancers ipaddress. You will need to configure one.
