Are you looking to change the network card the cluster node is using for its outgoing, client-facing communication? Can you share the version of Windows Server you're working with - that will determine the process for switching out the network card more than the version of SQL Server you're using.

Also, if you have the option to fail all your SQL instances to the "other" node, then you can make whatever changes you want to that node while you switch out the network card.
