I can't advise on the Python/Pandas side of things as I have to little knowledge about it, but if you can do this in Excel I could help. Does it have to be done in place? If so, use PowerQuery or VBA. If it's ok to do in a new column, then it's rather easy with ms365 functions.

@JvdV this is the wrong formula im using =VLOOKUP(A3,$A$1:$B$3,2,FALSE)
Answers(2) :

Nested =substitute functions would make this easy.

=substitute(substitute(substitute(d2, a2, b2),a3,b3),a4,b4) 

As per my comment, if it's ok to get data in a new column and with ms365, try:

Formula in E2:

The Google-Sheets equivalent, as per your request, could be:
