It's a conditional tense of the verb "to get" . So your example means "Were I to get my choice of all the nice young women of the world.." or, less formally, "If I had my choice...".

Regards

p.s. You might check the spelling of "roghainn" in that line - I suspect it may be rogha (pr. row (as in fight!) - ah!)
