         --          if we set environmental variable “start” as “go new_address”, will it go directly to the new bootloader in the next power-on.

what about using system environmental "start" ,can you tell me at which context after power on environmental variables come onto picture.

Of course, what is really happening there is that the Atlas boot ROM has a vector at 0x1fc00000 which reads the jumper and jumps to one address or the other depending on the jumper setting. If you control what is in ROM at 0x1fc00000 and you have a software-readable jumper on your KMC board, you can do the same thing.
