A "regular mac mic" is a small external mono mic that came with my previous Mac. Little round thing.
That's a "Plaintalk" mic, which has a longer-than-normal jack. I'm not surprised it doesn't work.

The G5 is supposed to have an internal mic, but I cannot figure out how to get it to respond, either.
The PowerMac G5 does not have an internal mic.

The iMac G5 does.

That suggests that there is something about G5s that is NOT immediately obvious, but prevents them from processing audio input regardless of source until and unless you know some magic trick that the owner's manual does not tell you.
Highly unlikely.

If you could just explain to me how to get any measurable response from the internal mic, that alone might show the exact nature of the problem.
As sated, the PowerMac G5 does not have an internal mic. The iMac G5 does.
