Yes you can. You can email or mail the document and the fully marked-up hard copy will be scanned and emailed back to you; larger documents will be returned by post or courier. Printing and postage costs will be added to your invoice.
Yes, this is called localisation. It is common for clients to request Australian and/or British English to be adapted for American markets, and vice versa. Other lexical variants of English, including Canadian, South African and New Zealand, can be adapted. Localisation not only involves word spellings, but word usage as well. For instance, the words garden and yard have opposite meanings in Canada and North America.
