The incidents are alleged to have occurred in or around the tunnel after the Seasiders' 2-1 victory - a result which kept them top of the Sky Bet Championship at the time.
The FA announced the charges brought against former England midfielder Ince are that he "used abusive and/or insulting words towards a match official", "his behaviour towards a match official constituted violent conduct" and that he "used threatening words and/or behaviour towards a match official".
Blackpool assistant manager Alex Rae also faces one count of alleged "threatening behaviour towards a match official".
Ince was sent to the stands in the closing stages of the match at Dean Court after he launched a water bottle in anger when Nathan Delfouneso missed a clear chance to add a third goal.
Both Ince and Rae have until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charges.
