Ted,

Apply[h, f[y][x]]
h[x]

Apply[h, f[y][x], 1, Heads -> False]
f[y][x]

Apply[h, f[y][x], 1, Heads -> True]
h[y][x]

Apply[h, f[g[y]][g[x]], 2, Heads -> False]
f[g[y]][h[x]]

Apply[h, f[g[y]][g[x]], 2, Heads -> True]
h[h[y]][h[x]]

To change just the head of the head we would use

Operate[h @@ # &, f[g[y]][g[x]]]
h[g[y]][g[x]]
