You can mix bewteen different versions of Debian, I have a mix of a Sarge/Sid system.
And yes, Gnome and KDE are totally independent, although some programs maybe requieres some 3rd part libs.
And infact, from today (February 5.) KDE 3.1 is part of unstable (sid), so you can grab it from a faster mirror than ftp.du.se
Be aware that it can take a couple of days before all mirrors are updated
