You could try and simply add kubuntu-desktop by
sudo aptitude (or apt-get) kubuntu-desktop
I suspect it will replace the mint network app with knetworkmanager though
then there is an app I can not remember (check on kde-apps.org) that 
sorts out the menu afterwards so all gnome-specific stuff ends up in a 
separate menu
Be sure to backup first...

there is a way to install "pure" kde environment, not kubuntu, but I can 
not remember or find it right now
