Very nice.

I was thinking somethig like that and assimilation chess.

Looks like the oficial game are better, because avoids a superking (from the substitution of a queen). A player would, then, sacrifice a piece by its value and strategic position in the board.

In the variation, wich is very nice too, a eager and fool player would sacrifice his king to get him back as a queen.

Just a little question: Where the reborn king appears? In the king initial position, the initial removed piece position (in this case, knights and rooks are hard to keep track) or the position where the removed piece was?

After all, it cannot come back where was, because that would be a weird capture.
