Your first question : Do not try to build the packages
yourself. That's what the .tar.bz2 files are meant for.

Instead use Synaptic or 'sudo apt-get install <kde-desktop>'
The packages are available :
.. set up the "Kubuntu Updates PPA repository" ...
http://www.kubuntu.org/

.....

Second question : yes, kdm or gdm will have a menu for
choosing KDE or Gnome.
