I don't think you can.
How ever you can make your DVD region free, you can rip DVD to digital format, which can be played on a PC or any device, and then it to Blu-ray or DVD so that you can get a region free disc that can be played on any player. In the process you also gained a digital version of your disc.

Hardware solution: The easiest way to play different regions DVD on Mac is to buy a region-free player, however, if you've already got a nice DVD player, you can use hacks to turn off the region code in your DVD player. Note that hacking your DVD player region code is a violation of the DMCA and this is ******* in the United States.
Software solution: If you live in the United States and you want a solution that will work on any DVD player but not to hack your DVD player, another best solution for you is to make a copy of the movie, although backing up copies of DVD is currently ******* in the United States, it will become available in the future. Then what you need to do is to using one of the popular ripping programs on the market, here, I would like to suggest you Free DVDAid, which enables you to make a 1:1 copy of the original DVD disc without quality loss with all audio streams and subtitle tracks well preserved. You will get a DVD that works that can work in any DVD player.

I don't think that it is illegal to change the region of a DVD player as a DVD drive in a computer can be changed easily up to 5 times before they are locked on one region. Sony Blu-Ray players at this point don't have a hack code and they have to have a hardware mod to play both region A and B Blu-Ray discs. There are inexpensive Phillips DVD players that are region free or they have an easy method to make them region unlocked. I don't know of any Blu-Ray players that have that feature, but you can get a N. American region coded player that will play both PAL and NTSC, but you will have to use a voltage converter as N America is 120V 60Hz and Europe is 220-240 @ 50hz.
The other option is to get a Blu-Ray/DVD RW drive for your computer and set it as a region 1drive and connect it to the TV for playing US discs.
There are other things you can do but those ARE illegal or questionable and I can't post them here.
Best of luck

At one time there were illegal services which would modify your gear, if you paid and mailed them the device. I don't think that is possible now; it was never advisable.
The DVD distributors have a large vested interested in controlling sales by region. For a premium price, you can buy a multi-region player.
There is really nothing you can do unless you want to play the risky game of downloading firmware modifications which could leave you with a "brick" that won't play anything.
