I notice the Pluto system is not distributed by Debian.  So the two
things you need to do are (a) to write the plugin, and (b) to get
Pluto, and your plugin, into Debian.

For writing the plugin, I don't know what resources to recommend to
you, since I am not immersed in the Gaim or Pluto scenes.  For getting
the system into Debian, you will want to read
http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ and other docs linked from
http://www.debian.org/devel/ .

At that point, this will be on-topic for this list.
