Okay, I now have my android champion (paladin) all made, even got his first game in. Even made his background a squire to make thematic sense. I wanted to take one of the Knights of Lastwall dedications at 2nd level, but they are uncommon. The rules state that uncommon options are available if the chatter is from the region. So, how does one take said region? My search skills are bringing up language discussions, equipment, but nothing on the region selection itself.
TL:DR version: How can I have my Android Paladin be from Lastwall so he can be a Knight?

I think it will depend on which related dedication you're asking about.
The Lastwall Sentry, I think you can you can qualify from in one of two ways:
pick lastwall as your home region. Everyone gets one for free. There's also a second home region boon (forget if its an ACP or a faction one, and the site isn't loading for me right now), if you need two home regions for some reason.
or the "Secondary Initiation" boon, could also handle it if you can't qualify for home region reasons.
For the Knight Reclaimant/Knight Vigilant ones, that require "Knight rank" on top of mere membership, will always need the Secondary Initiation boon -- that explicitly handles role play/rank requirements (such as Knight Rank, or the various Firebrand tiers, or the Hellknight Test, etc).

Lastwall Sentry dedication is a 2nd level feat.
Nielsen is correct that in order to access it you need to select Eye of the Dread as your home region, or purchase the second home region boon (if it still exists - it's a thing that used to exist at some point, but I'm not sure about it's current existence). This gives you Access to the archetype.
However, lastwall sentry Also has a prerequisite!
Prerequisites: member of the Knights of Lastwall; Shield Block
So you can freely choose one home region for your character to gain access, but just like with regular feats, you also need to fulfil the prerequisite, in this case it requires Shield Block and membership in the knights of the lastwall. This membership is achieved through the Secondary Initiation boon NielsenE mentioned.
