You can either install PulseAudio entirely from jessie or entirely from
jessie-backports, but you can't mix them.

That apt output looks as though you've instructed apt to install
libpulse-dev from jessie, but you already have libpulse0 etc. from
jessie-backports, which are incompatible with libpulse-dev from jessie.
apt is configured not to try to find solutions involving backported
packages, so the installation fails.

"apt install libpulse-dev/jessie-backports" will probably work.

Alternatively, aptitude tries harder to offer you multiple solutions,
one of which is usually what you want; you might find it useful here.
