I have no knowledge of Kingsoft Office, to help you with that.

However, LibreOffice is easily installable (free of charge) on Lubuntu 
from the repository, and (in my experience) seamlessly handles all of 
the Microsoft document and spreadsheet files, and can both read and 
write them.

To a lesser degree, Abiword and gnumeric will also do so (I don't use 
Abiword because of difficulties I've had using graphics in documents - I 
use LibreOffice instead).  I checked if Abiword and Gnumeric support the 
various Microsoft spreadsheet and document file formats, and they do.
