Which resistor/resistors do I need to downsize a 9 volt power supply to 5 volt? Thanks

Depends entirely on the current. V=IR. At 0amps, no amount of resistance will help.

You probably want to look at using a step down transformer.

Thanks for the reply! Will I have heating problems with using a step down transformer? I’m planning to create a circuit with a switch and a led strip.

Not likely - and definitely not more so than with a resistor divider. Buck converter circuits are usually a lot more efficient than using resistors.
