However, with respect to the post-tax contributions, they may not be so transferred or rolled over. In this case, is it permissible to deposit them into a post-tax (i.e., non-deductible) IRA?
No. You have to take a cash distribution of your post-tax contributions. You pay no tax or penalty since, as you note, you've already been taxed on the income.
See Publications 575 and 590.
