Neither of these is available in Debian, so please file two "Intent To
Package" (ITP) bugs, create the packages and get them uploaded to
Debian via a sponsor. More information about that in the links below:

If there exists software to do this, please file ITP bugs for the
relevant software, create the packages and get them uploaded to Debian
via a sponsor.

If the software doesn't exist yet, you will need to create it or find
someone to create it for you before performing the above steps.

Since you are producing a Debian derivative you might be interested in
the activities of the Debian derivatives group:
