You can do something pretty close to this, and it is easy because you
ask about ubuntu.
You question asks about actual boot up, however, it would be more
usual to make such a choice at login, not bootup as such.
It will be good practice to verify that your system is up to date so
first use update manager to check this.
then, if you already have ubuntu installed, use synaptic package
manager to install the package
Alternatively, if you started only with kubuntu installed, then
install the package
When you next login, use the options menu (in ubuntu it is at lower
left hand side of display, in kubuntu, a rectangle icon near the login
box), choose which 'session' to use - gnome or kde.
