Can rpm packages from other linux distribution be used on Debian?

Hello People:
     Our product is base on redhat,I will porting it to Debian,but in this
system,many procedure depend redhat rpms,for example:
glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm, perl-5.8.0-88.i386.rpm,etc..
    At the start,I wanted to try install these rpm packages(from redhat) On
debian,but I found that thers is a lot work to do,some rpm packages even can't
be installed on it.(perhaps these rpms packages from redhat can't be used on
debian at all).I think 2 ways to settle this problem,But I am not sure these
ways is doable,and I wish to get some advices about it.these problem are:
 	1. Use a certain tool to translate these packages(glibc*.rpm..) from redhat
to rpm packages that can be used on debian.Is there such tools exist on
	2. On Debian,after I install rpm,rpm DB and deb DB exist,Can I make some
mapping bettwen betwwen rpm DB and deb DB? when I run rpm command,the OS will
invoke debian DB.for example:
	# rpm -qv gcc
	package gcc is not installed
	#dpkg -l |grep gcc
	ii  gcc-3.0        3.0.4-7        The GNU C compiler.
this means gcc*rpm isn't installed but gcc*deb is installed on debian. after I
make this mapping,I can use rpm to access deb DB.
	# rpm -qv gcc
if this way is feasible,How to do it?

	I am a new debian user,not too familiar with this OS,	If above ways are
impossible,is thers other ways to attain my purpose?
