You cannot find out somone's subnet mask, or gateway externally. Both are part of their internal network, all of which shares the same external IP.

thanx.. can you show how to get the full details for ip tracing/ip trapping
You say, "recording the geographical location of the visitor can be done this way" How can I get the user's geographical location to redirect the user to the correct info for their region?
Once IP address is known then the location can be collected by using available geo location tables. These tables are available at cost and can be updated regularly.

Your ISP assign you different IP each time you start connecting to internet. This is known as dynamic IP. In contrast if you take static IP from your ISP , they will charge more for this but you can have your own services like VOIP, web hosting etc.
