If both are wireless capable, they will both get different wireless addresses. If you "install" both wireless printers on your PC, to print to either one, just select that printer and then print.

Neither of those printers have wifi built-in so you would need a wireless print server to plug them into that could then be plugged into your router so your computer could print to either via wifi. Here is a link to some that should work for you: Networking, Network Print Servers, New, 802.11b/g/n, RJ45 - Newegg.com

I would suggest just replacing the Canon Pixma MP140 with a newer printer that has a wireless print server builtin to the printer. That printer was less than $100 when it was new and it is pretty old.(It was released back in 2007) A newer model that is comparable to that printer could be purchased for under $100 and wouldn't cost much more than the print server.

It would be pricier to replace with Kyocera printer with something comparable. Unless there is an issue with that printer I would suggest getting a wireless print server.
