    One way to achieve this is to use the form's full source code embed. You can manually edit the text "Please Select" in the source before embedding on your website.

    user guide: -How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    The downside is that everytime you have modification on the form, you will need to manually re-embed the source code again on your website every time you make changes on the form.



    You can remove the Country list in the Full Address field and then just add your own Dropdown list that contains custom country list
