'you may flip the disk and simultaneously move it according to that new game piece's abilities'

>Does it mean that I can flip and make a move with flipped piece in one move? 

Yes. If that side has its Pilgrim or Goblin King on board, his/her flippable pieces on the magic river can flip identity and move as the flipped piece, or not flip and move as the original piece--they have the potentially as either.

'On the other hand, when a piece stands on a magic river square, it attains the powers of both sides of its disk, making it a doubly powerful piece with (in a way) two simultaneous but separate identities. This can lead to opportunistic flipping, perhaps the happiest moments in the game. If your Pilgrim or Goblin King isn’t on the board, you deny your forces this power.'
