Old gas fireplace replacement

We have an old gas fire in our living room, with a brick surround. If we wanted to remove this fire and install an electric or wood burner stove instead, how is best to go about it? do we need to cap the gas at source or can we do it in the fireplace area?

The short answer is either are acceptable! As long as any concealed joints are soldered, not compression joints you are all set.
