my question is:
can I replace my Sun Sparc 20 keyboard with a IBM PC
keyboard? what should I do?

sun makes a $50 adapter that will let you do what you want.

Not to my knowledge. There is a Sun PC style keyboard layout, but
I don't think J random PC keyboards work at all.

Contact sun-express and get the adaptor box they have.

The answer is... yes! Sun makes a box called the Sun Interface
Converter that allows you to connect PS/2 input devices to your
List price is $75 (less than the keyboard :-), and the Sun part
number is X465A.

No, the keyboard controllers used on a SPARCstation and an IBM-PC (or
compatbile) are completely different, and thus the keyboards are not
compatible. You might be able to find a vendor selling an IBM-PC style
keyboard that will work on a sun, however.

There is a link to a company that sells these somewhere on
-- thanks to those reply, I'll take action based on that.
