I believe my internal modem on an HP Pavilion ZT 1270 has failed.  Can I disable it and install a modem in the PCMCIA slot?

If your BIOS has the option to do that, yes. Otherwise installing the PCMCIA card may get configured as COM port 2, in which case it should be usable. You will just have to redefine your dial-up settings to use port 2.

Greetings, aztaxpro!
  Disable the driver.  Go to Device Manager and find the HP modem driver. Click Properties. Uncheck "Exists in all hardware profies" and check "disable in this hardware profile"

Best wishes, war1
