There's a better option.  Apt stores the downloaded packages in
/var/cache/apt/archives.  It doesn't remove them until you say so with
"apt-get clean" or "apt-get autoclean".  (the latter doesn't remove
everything)  If you really want to keep something, just copy it out of
that directory.  Another option is to download the .deb via a web
browser or some such and use 'dpkg -i' to install it/them.

man bash

Read about environment variables.

Whatever file you feel like setting it in, as long as your shell reads
it :-).  (IOW the shell (and thus environment variables) are quite
flexble and can be handled in a wide variety of ways)

I recommend simply using the ready-made debian package instead.  It's
simpler that way.
