I've picked up a Glock 34 and found I like a comped pistol better. With that said I looked at the lightning cut in the front of the slide and wondered if swapping in a ported barrel would act similarly to a comp?

Short answer: yes. I would buy a second barrel and have it ported, if you think you might ever sell/trade it. Most people don't want the porting in the 34, which is why Glock dropped it when they reissued the 17L as the 34.
Glock offers a series of ported models with the designation "C," as in G19C, G17C, etc. I can definitely see it jet upward when a shot is fired, and it's louder, but I don't perceive much change in the handling of the pistol.
Lone Wolf should offer exactly what you are looking for.

Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats." -PJ O'Rourke “It is just as difficult and dangerous to try to free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to try to enslave a people that wants to remain free." -Niccolo Machiavelli
The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all. -Mencken
