I need to learn some ksh details, but i don't want to change from bash to ksh permanently.
What should i do?
Is it possible to change shell only for a specific console session?

ksh, you can also use the command
exec ksh to replace your existing shell. Then, when you exit
ksh that console is closed.
Not as important now, but used to be terribly important when we had 150 users all sharing the same limited machine.
exec ksh at the end of your
.bashrc should do it -- but then it would affect every every interactive shell.
