when you get your graphical login box you will be able to drop down a box to choose between them. it should then remember your last choice for you.

As per the previous poster.

The only difference is that now you'll be able to launch GNOME applications from within KDE.

This is NOT a bad thing.

I find it is worth it.

Not exactly sure on what apps, i know a few games are also available to you in KDE that are installed for GNOME.

Yes it's worth installing both.

What kinds of apps?

All kinds, that were written for Gnome, but will also run under KDE if gnome support is installed. Gnome support is added if the Gnome WM is installed as well.

kde and kde each have their own cd burners, file managers, basis editors, browsers. you may find that you prefer kde's cd burner...
