In /etc/ssh/sshd_config you can change the port to one you like (default is 22). Don't forget to restart the sshd daemon after you have changed that.

A router can forward a single port to a single destination only, but the destination can usually include a custom port. What I mean is you can usually setup port forwarding on a router as:

Router_public_IP:3022 --> Server1:22
Router_public_IP:4022 --> Server2:22

If you can setup your router like this you don't need to change the port of openSSH on the server.
