i bought a UK english powerbook g3, is there any thing i have to do to swap it to US english other than just a language option in the OS and swap a keycap out for a US english 3?

The easy way is to swap the UK system to Us one.

A copy of both System and Finder in the System file should work.

so renaming the UK system (and maybe Finder) to old and leaving the US ones untouched and you are probably good to go.

Of course a complete install will work as well.

Didn't know if it was a hardware differnece, i have a 3400c in storage i can get the keyboard off of.
