you can install the gentoo linux-dist in parallel to the default

such you have to manually start programs there via chroot. This means
you do not have access to you FreeBSD files like normally, except you
do null-mounts into the gentoo area. It also means your experience
will not be as "integrated" as with the defaut linux-base (the
linux-base port does some effort to integrate FreeBSD config files and
installed resources like fonts).
Just switching between them, like changing a symlink, is theoretically
possible, but the gentoo linux-dist port is not designed for this kind
of integration. It's a linux-"dist" port, not a linux-"base" port.
