Welcome to the list!
What you want to do is very possible. Many do it already.
What can become a challenge is neatly starting and stopping the recording of your "verse" loop -- in perfect time. Practice makes perfect. Now, you must consider the foot move you make to start/stop your looper as something to practice, just like you once practiced changing chords without skipping a beat.
Alternatively, more expensive looping tools can be synchronized to drum machines that send midi information about starting and stopping things for you.
