Is there any kernel on which we can run Ubuntu??Like in some case Debian can run on BSD kernel (if I am correct) If it is possible how can I proceed

No. There is too much linux only stuff in the default Ubuntu install.

It should be possible, but a lot of work, to create a distro similar to Ubuntu but based on the BSD kernel. But it's far more complicated than just sudo apt-get install bsd.

The BSD ports in Debian are complete ports (different architectures, from a package management point of view). That means almost every package has to be built specfically for it.

A fair number of Ubuntu-specific features (such as upstart) aren't supported on BSD yet.
