save your money and don't buy swap magic or anything else. we have a fmcb install program that is free and the installers have doing this for a good while. you need to have fmcb set up on your mc (memory card) so that it can launch ESR.
this is how things will look like with ESR and your import game,
a. make a rip (disc image) from your original import copy
b. patch the disc image with the ESR disc patcher (the patch is needed)
c. burn the disc image onto a good quality dvd-5 disc
d. ntsc-j games (jap) are watchable on standard american 60 hertz tv sets and this means that you won't need to do anything else.
