How can I legally trace and stop someone from using my number to call? I’ve been getting calls & messages from strangers saying they got a missed call from my number when I never called them and can’t see any pocket dials too in my phone’s call log.

You were the victim of number spoofing. Spammers use a computer to dial people and use a random number for the number display.

Since it doesn't go through the carrier at all, unfortunately there is nothing you can do except hope that the computer uses a different number soon. Usually they do after a few days.
