Well i'd like to start of by stating that when it comes to code and moding i have little to no idea what im doing but i think that what i want to do is a minor modification, so heres the idea:

-The Ig soldiers have randomly selected faces that alternate between like 3 or 4 different faces. Is there any easy way i can set my game up so they all have the same face (the Breather mask face)?

-Secondly will it have any negative side effects when i play online?

Any advice or help would be appreciated, or if a mod to do this or something similar already exists and you could point me in it's direction i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks in advance. :)

I Don't Know How To Do The Faces Thing... I Think It May Be Easy....

And You Would Only Be Able To Play Online With Other People Who Are Fortunate To Own A Copy Of Your Mod.

:D

You can't just configure a file to have all the faces mix up. You'll have to totally create a new mod.

I have a feeling that there maybe be files that you have to delete, until the only one left is for that mask you want. Technically, just modifying one file is still a mod, hence the name, "mod". But if it was not done through a mod I have a feeling it would most likely crash your game. :(

Yes it would - that's these changes are always done in mods

It requires a lua edit somewhere. And since this would create a game critical lua to be different in multiplayer from other peoples, it would come sync errors.
