Is it possible to root Android devices to install Raspbian (Debian derivative for ARM processors)? I see on the Internet that Androids are rooted to install a different version of Android or to get more features, but I do not see anyone installing an entirely different operating system. Can Android be removed and replaced with a system that uses ARMv6? Since this topic deals with Android devices, I think the questions would belong on this StackExchange site.

Raspbian isn't an Ubuntu derivative, it's a Debian derivative, as their website explains. It's also not just "for ARM processors": it's specifically for the Raspberry Pi, which has an ARMv6, older than most Android devices (which tend to have ARMv7 CPUs). Their FAQ has a question, Will Raspbian work with non-Raspberry Pi systems?, which suggests you don't attempt to use Raspbian on ARMv7 devices.
If you actually want to install Ubuntu on a phone or tablet, you can try Ubuntu Touch, but at present the Ubuntu folks describe it as a "work in progress", which supports only a handful of devices. The folks on our sister site Ask Ubuntu are happy to answer your questions about (released versions of) Ubuntu Touch.
