I changed from Xubuntu 13.10 to Kubuntu by installing the package kubuntu-desktop with its dependencies by

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

But the system seems to lack some features, I think.

So are there any packages that are usually installed from a fresh Kubuntu-CD that are missing when you just swap from Xubuntu?

Try installing with sudo apt-get install kubuntu-full, it should get you the complete netbook/desktop Plasma edition. You can then go through the list of available Kubuntu packages.
