Use unstable.

You keep the Debian revision the same until it is sponsored.
For the 1st upload, you do not add entries to the changelog as well, it
is just "Initial Packaging (Closes: #ITP-Bug-Number).
Subsequent uploads will go more into details then, listing every change
made to the packaging.

Yeah, See my other mail!

I recommend to browse through the documents linked in "3. Make the package"
in https://mentors.debian.net/intro-maintainers. They will probably help you
a lot to get into the (difficult) topic of packaging.
I know its a lot to read, but it helps to know "where to look"; it is not
necessary that you memorize everything to the letter, but a rough idea where
something is explained will help. (and the knowledge will also come with
using it anyway)
