Ubuntu is based on Debian Package Management while Fedora is based on RPM .While installing packages for Particular Os (Ubuntu or Fedora) they are only accessible in the Os you installed. Also different methods are used for Installing packages in both of them. For Example -You cant Install the IOs app for Android , unless it is made available or created for Android.
Basically You cant use packages from Different Os'es. They are TWO DIFFERENT OS with Different Identities . you have to do little research on both of them , if you are really interested in using them.
