Work around isn't possible.
As soon as you set the IMAP server to imap.gmail.com you can see the password field goes disabled and the advanced connection settings are disabled and "gmail" type is forced.
This "helpful" would seem easy to undo, and then at least there would then be a way to connect KMail to Gmail again, because right now the feature is dead (and has been for months ?!?).
Suggest raising importance to something higher because it's an important feature, with no possible end user work around.
