you seem to be highly motivated to work on this, which is great.  As you
already found out, there isn't really a standard and convenient way to
install Debian GNU/Hurd.

But there is not much that is Hurd specific in installing the Hurd.  So it
makes a lot of sense to just port the Debian installation procedure, from
debootstrap to debian-installer, to the Hurd.  Help with this is
appreciated.  Some people like James Morrison and Glenn McGrath already
started with that some time ago, and surely there is a lot still to do.
