Default Swaping RHD steering rack w/LHD ?

I'm wondering if it is possible to take a jdm steering rack and swap it to a usdm car? If the rack can't be swapped, then could the internals that make it work be swapped out?

No and kind of. The RHD rack is mirrored from our LHD rack so a physical swap is not possible. The internals could, theoretically, be swapped. Problems arise from the fact that the steering racks aren't easily serviceable. Parts are very fragile inside. It looks like the FSM does give rebuild instructions but they look worse than rebuilding a rear differential.
