Is it possible to swap the steerer tube on these old forks?

They should be able to be pressed out by a professional.

If you are talking about the original RS1 the steer tube is a bolt in bolt out item.
Undo the 4 crown bolts, support the crown and tap the steer tube out (from the top down) with a soft faced hammer.

Replacement steerer may need pressing in though.
