How would a person  who lives in the U.S. and owns a regionless DVD player go about getting Season 3/4 on DVD? I'm not sure how it works with websites and money exchanging...

If you have a credit card you can order those from amazon.uk.  That's where I get mine from (season 4 is on it's way) and I haven't had a problem with them. The price ends up working out to be similar to the domestic release price including shipping.  If you use a credit card the money exchanging usually is done automatically.  Beware that some credit card companies will charge you for the exchange (bastards!). 

Don't forget that you will need to have a region free DVD player and a PAL/NTSC convertor to view the U.K. Futurama DVDs on a standard US TV set.  Your region free DVD player my already have a video convertor in it (my Daewoo 5700 DVD player does).  I'm not sure 100%, but I think if you're planing on watching them on your computer with a region free DVD drive, you don't have to worry about the PAL/NTSC video conversion.  Maybe someone else can chime in on that.

wait, does the TV or DVD Player need to be able to switch from NTSC to PAL? Because my DVD player does but my TV doesn't

Either one.  Your objective is to get a NTSC video signal to your TV.  I'm assuming most people will have a region free DVD player with a PAL/NTSC convertor built in or one of the stand alone convertors available to do this.  Hybrid TVs that can view both a PAL and NTSC signal do exist, but they are much more rare and expensive than standard sets, so I assume most people don't use that option.  If you have a DVD player with the convertor in it and have it enabled that should be all you need.
