Default kegging and dispensing questions

I just got an old Perlick kegerator from my uncle thats in a bit of disrepair. Iplan on removing the tower, cleaning it up, and mounting it on my bar. The top and door need replaces, but that looks easy enough as they are made out of partical board. The rest of the kegerator look in decent enough nick, but I'm going to have to have a refrigeration specialist look at it as its not cooling. It most likely has a leak and needs recharged. I also got two regulators and two gas bottles with the thing. I will have to replace the gauges on the regulators though.

My wife wont let me mount a double tower; she says while we do drink a lot of beer, we don't drink enough to warrant having two kegs tapped. We recieved a keg for a wedding gift, so I will need to set up the system to work with that. (same type pictured here)

But, I also want the ability of being able to run a store bought keg of beer occasionally though it. Is there a setup that will let me run both alternately on the single tower? Or will I need to have two sets of lines, and just disconnect one from the tower and hook up the other when I am ready to use a different type of keg on it?

I think you can get tap conversion kits to go from commercial to ball/pin quick disconnects.

A setup like this should be all you need to switch between commercial Sankey kegs and Soda kegs.
