I want to thank Jannis for his teapot riddles with this.

I am one word, but have 2 or more different meanings.

I’m two nouns and a verb,

Take my first, flip it around, you’ll get my last,
You could find anywhere, in tubes and pipes,
It’ll be quite a long time, for half of my life,

Follow me, I’ll show you the way to another place,
I’ll keep your dogs, cats, bunnies in line,
While I help detectives solve a crime

Connecting the dots, but more than that, Bringing your cable to your tv, Transporting power, that stuff’s easy

Are you

LEAD?

Take my first, flip it around, you’ll get my last,

If you flip an L you kind of get a D; also switching them makes DEAL

You could find anywhere, in tubes and pipes,

Lead pipes

It’ll be quite a long time, for half of my life,

Lead pipes have a long life (but eventually leech!)

Follow me, I’ll show you the way to another place,

I can lead you somewhere

I’ll keep your dogs, cats, bunnies in line,

Pet leads/leashes

While I help detectives solve a crime

Following a lead

Connecting the dots, but more than that,

Leading from step to step

Bringing your cable to your tv,

Lead cable

Transporting power, that stuff’s easy

Lead power generation

The last two lines could also refer to

Electronics leads, destined to connect two locations electrically
