It's been a while, but I believe you would use something like:

apt-get install package/branch
For example:
apt-get install xullrunner/experimental
Now days, I use aptitude instead of apt-get because it seems to be better at installing dependencies.

Not sure.  I've seen posts in the past suggesting Debian might not continue iceweasel, but no official announcement.
Currently, I use the firefox 3.6 binary installed in my home dir.

The only issue will be if the iceweasel version isn't the most current stable Firefox.  You want the latest firefox version to get the
best results with orca.
Orca isn't very hard to learn.  The worst problem is using speakup commands when I forget I'm in my gnome session.
Since both screen readers use espeak, it's easy to do that.
