Unfortunately, the documentation at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#errordocument leaves no doubt : not possible. On the other side, is it really so much of a problem ?

Just to make sure, I downloaded Apache's source code. In the set_error_document() function, I've found an explicit conversion string to integer for the 3-digit code read from the config file (or .htaccess) and a reference to a conf->response_code_strings[] table. Obviously, they didn't make it "regexp-aware", which confirms the impossibility, since it's the only place in the code where Apache deals with HTTP errors.

>> i guess i will erase the query.

I don't understand. Could you please rephrase ?

only reason i ask is this
i have gallery on my site and the mod_rewrite says this:

mod_rewrite is an Apache module that lets web server applications do clever things with URLs. Gallery uses this module to allow it to use short URLs, for example with mod_rewrite this URL takes you directly to a picture:

http://www.menalto.com/photos/Jai2/photo-aaa 
whereas without it, you'd have to use this one:

http://www.menalto.com/photos/view_photo.php?set_albumName=Jai2&id=photo-aaa 

the RedExp would been nice to make one errordocument directive, i like the URI to be shorter if possible.

Hmm, personally, I don't mind, but you should read this :
http://www.experts-exchange.com/help/member.jsp#10 (The correct answer to some questions is "you can't do that")

>> the RedExp would been nice to make one errordocument directive, i like the URI to be shorter if possible.

Aaahh, but that's something completely different ! You don't use ErrorDocument for that. Here something that should do for your request :

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ view_photo.php?set_albumName=$1&id=$2 [QSA]
</IfModule>

I'm not so sure anymore, but also try with prepending photos/ in case it doesn't work

   RewriteRule ^photos/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ photos/view_photo.php?set_albumName=$1&id=$2 [QSA]
