I believe that this term refers to that in a balanced equation and that forward and reverse rates are equal. Hope this helped!

I think microscopic reversibility means that for the forward and reverse directions of a reaction, there are the same intermediates involved, so the forward and reverse reactions go on the same, single pathway.
