If the objective is to remove Ubuntu anyway and not keeping any data, you can use the same installation medium you used when installing the current version and then format the hard drive.

You can install as many as you want to on a single version of ubuntu. You choose which one you want to use when you log in. Sometimes, installing kde (kubuntu) along with other environments can mess up your themes in other environments but other than that it's no problem. It's best to stick to one but you may want to have multiple ones to choose from until ...

I don't see any difference except color theme. However, all changes you describe come from either widget theme or window manager effects. Go to app launcher -> System Settings.
