Could I switch the curse word?

Hi there

I’m directing a story that is based in two different worlds where I try to keep swearing to a minimum. Is it ok if I switch the curse words to something else? Would I need to use the * in it anyway?

I’ve blurred the swear words for those who don’t want to read them.

for example

f*ck off would become Clack off

Shut up would become Clack it or Clack up

B*tch would become Clack

I think you can…
as I have seen some author like Amanda in the The big “Oh”?

but be sure to let reader know about the… meaning of these… in readerMessage or in any other way.

Here in my social circle we replace f*ck to freak if it meant to express in positive way. Ex: freakin awesome
Or in bad way, to frick or fudge. Hell to heck
