Hi, I have Netgear R6700 on DD-WRT v3.0-r31277 small (10/01/1 with ExpressVpn but I want to switch to NordVpn now.
Which DD-WRT fw will I need to flash onto the router to run NordVpn and do I flash that fw onto the router over the existing ExpressVpn fw?

It is just as @eibgrad said.
You can upgrade via the GUI and use whatever VPN provider you want, nowadays it can be a good idea to choose a provider which also supports WireGuard, a new and much faster VPN.
Important: the R6700 has 3 versions which are different so make sure you flash for the right version.
As you are running a very old build it could be v1 you have?
As it is a very old build I would reset to defaults before the upgrade and after the upgrade.
Reset to defaults after the upgrade is the most important one.
Put settings in manually never restore from a backup to a different build.
