If you want to install another Fedora Linux, while keeping your /home folder, all you need to do is use the existing partition layout and making sure that you do not format /home. There is a checkbox in the partitioning part of anaconda, the installer.

You should still consider just installing the Desktop Environment you want (Gnome) on top of your existing Fedora. You could later remove KDE.

Why do you want to resize your partitions? You setup looks just fine. All you could potentially do is to decrease / (root) (50GB) to something like 30GB and add that free space to home. But you can't do that during installation. It's a separate process, which you have to run from a live disc because your filesystems (/ and /home) should not be mounted during that process....
