    Yes, they did it in pokemon (when the japanese AP was bypassed but the english wasn't).

    hey rydian, would you know where the files are for the language files in Phantasy Star Zero?

    and if you do, what programs would you tell me to use??

    No clue.

    I know you use DSLazy to unpack and repack ROMs.

    There was a project that did something similar to what I think you're goal is.

    You want the special weapons that were in the Japanese version right?
    The thing is the items are essentially overwritten. for example the Pipe Bazooka in the (J) version becomes something else in the (U) version and even taking a save from the (J) version and playing it on the (U) version swaps the info too.
    Because the items are essentially the same, someone wrote a patch that swaps the graphics on the two sets.
    The patch is here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=193512

    If you want to play online, I think this would be your best option since the Wireless AP in PS0 is... bothersome.
    It's pretty certain that the Wireless AP will separate users if flashcards are detected, but I believe that it will also group people by level/class and most likely region too.
