    Did you read the Apple site by an chance?

    You can trick out your iMac G5 with optional wireless so you only need one cable, for power.

    AirPort wireless connection

    AirPort Express with AirTunes lets you connect to the Internet, stream music to your home stereo and print remotely. To do so, you'll need an AirPort Extreme card, which you can let Apple install for you or you can do it yourself by following the directions on a handy diagram on the inside of your iMac. You can set up an AirPort wireless network in minutes.

    Bluetooth i don't think you can add internally later but you can just buy a cheap usb adapter like the D-Link DBT-120 USB Bluetooth Adapter.

    This is any easy answer. Airport...no problem! Three screws to pop off the back put in card and then put the back on. Bluetooth. Well, not possible as far as the built in sort because Apple builds it into your midplane assembly.
