Covers for sideloaded books

I have some books from the Gutenberg project in word and pdf format and i would like to add an image as a cover.

Is that possible in the Kobo Touch?

Your best bet in either case is to use a tool such as calibre (that happens to have it's own forum at MobileRead) and convert them from Word / PDF to ePub, and then add the cover image to the ePub.

You could also check this thread Project Gutenberg where a member of MobileRead has a torrent available of 25,693 books from the project.

Finally, you could also check the library at MobileRead and see if the books you are interested in have been converted to ePub format by someone else.
