Yep.  There are two ways to do this.  You log into kde or gnome via your 
session manager gdm/kdm, or you can run gnome apps in kde or kde apps in 
gnome.  When you do the latter, e.g. run a gnome app in kde, the required 
gnome libraries are loaded into memory, so you should log into the desktop 
that you plan to use primarily.
