Posting many times the same message is not going to help you, on the 
opposite you risk to be boring.
Compiz is not part of KDE and emerald, AFAIK, is not even part of Debian 
at all and this is why you can't find its package. The only help you can 
get here is how to have compiz instead of Kwin. In systemsettings -> 
Default Applications -> Window Manager -> Use a different window manager 
-> choose whatever WM you want.
The other stuff you are looking for is not KDE related and as such, it's 
completely off-topic in this mailing list and you won't probably get any 
help here.
