The medium KKs are three gallons, yes? That would be alright if you do the right ammount of water changes. The only con with that is that it is about two gallons too small IMHO, but it can work temporarily. They will be in eachother's way all the time. I would say that a large KK (5 gallons) is the best option for a frog and a betta.
Also the nipping issue may happen no matter what, but it all depends on the attitude of the betta in the end. All of mine have come in contact with ADFs at some point, and only one or two have been aggressive.
If you are worried about the frog starving, simply cup the betta and feed him seperately, eventually he will learn that the cup means food and he will swim right in when you place it in the water.
