Make three way switches into one two way?

I want to install dimmable smart switches. I have a couple 3 way switches in my house. Most smart dimmer switches do not work 3 way switches. Is there a way I can just take one of the three way switches out, cap those wires, put a solid cover on the box, and replace the other 3 way switch with a 2 way?

Yes.... you could do that however makes sure that switch is not in a critical location. You don't want to create a hazardous condition. Many smart switches can be used three way,
