Changing Valorant server is actually far easier rather than changing your Riot accounts region.
Unfortunately, this option limit your server choice is to the one that is closest to your region.
But, you still can expect some different gameplay experiences, since one region provides you plenty of servers; for example, SEA / APAC region got Singapore, Tokyo, Mumbai, and even Sydney servers to choose from.
