Whilst i have no experience replacing Apple G4 displays, LCD replacement in general is
fairly easy. For starters, you're 100% going to need a new panel, preferably a
like-for-like, though it's entirely possible you could stick in a different model if
it's using LVDS connections inside. It's just a case of disassembling, swapping
the screen, and reassembling in the reverse order.
To be honest, it's probably cheaper just to buy a complete display, instead of
replacing the LCD screen. There won't be much price difference between the LCD panel
and a complete display.
The display shown in the original question looks like the early Apple LCD with a
proprietary interface connector. Those might be available, but not all that common.
A good option might be to replace it with a conventional DVI LCD. Depending on the Mac,
it might have a second display connector that is DVI -- my Mac Pro does, for example. Or
you might be able to find a convertor cable, I don't remember what's involved in
