Just move to 2.8.

I am unable to add bone constraint: limit location to a bone in an armature. Everytime I try, the constraint is applied to the entire armature.

What gives?

Maybe you're confusing bone constraints with object constraints? To give a bone a constraint, you need to switch your armature to Pose mode, then you'll have access to the Bone Constraints tab, which is not the same as the Object Constraints tab.
