uneven pecs to the max
so my left pec is well-rounded where as my right pec is flat. i bench 225 and i have gained 30lbs over the year but left side of chest is still noticeably bigger... especially the upper pec. I am not sure if it is because my right front delt is a bigger than left...so it takes stress off my right pec.
anyway i can fix this? my upper right pec is like non existent

Stop doing barbell bench press as you are more than likely under-recruitting the pectoral muscle in question due to over-recruiting your triceps on that same side.

would it be good to do some 1 armed isolated exercsies after bench/chest press? such as 1 arm cable flyes or 1 arm cable press

Dumbbell presses should help you even out.

i might drop the weight or switch to dumbell (with lower weight) for better form. if i continue with lower weight will i gain muscle still?

I think the first reaction would be, to just think it might be a, "train this more, or this less", situation, because of say size comparison, but have you got any pics?
Not to go into too much detail but, if it is a situation where you may have more than one muscle group or upper shoulder/back/chest imbalance, it might be a combination of some exercises (rehab types and stretching) to counter or balance up the sides. So without an actual evaluation of the cause in the first place, it might be hard to say exactly how to proceed with the best, fastest and most reliable approach to aid the differences. ie: The upper back, also involves postural muscles etc. so to draw conclusions and thus exercises from just a one or so muscle size standpoint, might be premature IMO.
