From the Bolt Ace archetype :
Inexplicable Reload : At 11th level, loading a crossbow becomes unthinking and automatic for a bolt ace. As long as she has at least 1 grit point, she always starts each round of combat (even a surprise round) with her crossbow loaded. Also, the amount of time needed to reload a crossbow decreases by one step: a standard action becomes a move action, a move action becomes a swift action, a swift action becomes a free action, and a free action becomes not an action. This deed replaces lightning reload.
The description for the ballista is as follows: A ballista is essentially a Huge heavy crossbow fixed in place.
Given this description, can the Inexplicable Reload affect light ballistas? Can other abilities of the Bolt Ace affect light ballistas? Would the only obstacle one would have to worry about is the size of the PC wielding said ballista?

I've always wanted to play a character who wields a balista enchanted with the called enchantment. He would run around the battle field summoning his siege engine into position and blowing stuff up. I think that reloading hands would even let you reload your balista every round.
I... think I'm going to steal this. That's ingenious.
