Yes, in general it's better to have the latest code. Also it's more likely you'll get updates from 13.10, and for grub that'll (automatically) update the MBR.

Ubuntu 10.04 is "end of life" and unsupported so I would recommend to just replace it and let Kubuntu use the whole drive.

It is very easy to install 2 or more desktop environment (Gnome, Unity, KDE, etc) and switch between them as desired--it is not necessary to dual boot.
