It seems like both of those would be appropriate to do directly in
Debian or in the corresponding upstream projects. I expect the Debian
SELinux team would welcome new contributors, they often have trouble
keeping up with maintenance of SELinux packages. I suggest that you
send your firewalld fixes to upstream so they benefit all distros and
also to Debian so that you get fixed Debian packages sooner.

In addition to the suggestion Jonas made, in some situations (such as
appliances), using apt pinning might be a suitable solution.
