    Was wondering if it is possible to add INTERNAL bluetooth to an iMac G4 that did not come with it. If so, can someone please point me in the right direction to get instructions and/or parts?

    To add an internal BT module you would have to open up the iMac, voiding the warrantee.

    And it's near impossible to find the right BT module for the iMac, so in short, it is impossible to add a BT module.

    go USB

    The internal Bluetooth is not a simple adapter. There's an internal circuit board, and an antenna, and a couple of other tiny bits. This is not practical to install, as it requires pretty much a complete disassembly of the iMac. Get a USB BlueTooth adapter, instead. You'll get the same results for about $50 without spending perhaps over $200 , including parts plus labor.
