Can licensing and experience as a merchant marine in America apply over seas or is that a completely different set of rules?

I believe you can, at least what is in compliance with STCW’10 (from 01.01.-17) It is the other way around it does NOT work.

PS> I assume you are taking about working of foreign flag ships, or working abroad?

Contact the maritime administration of the flag state of the vessel(s) you are considering working on. They will tell you what they require and will accept.

Most of them have a route by which you may obtain a “certificate of equivalent competency.” Most of the information is readily available online as well.
