yes and yes.
Fonts: ttf-arphic-* in the main debian repository, or for more advanced 
fonts (simplefied and traditional in one unicode ttf font) add the 
following to your sources.list:
deb ftp://debian.linux.org.tw/pub/apt/ unstable main
Then get the ttf-arphic-{ukai|uming} font.

Input method:
I suggest SCIM (also in the main repository), together with scim-chinese 
(smart pinyin for simplefied and traditional), scim-tables for other 
input methods (chang jie, bopomofo (zhuyin), etc.) and scim-chewing 
(smart bopomofo (zhuyin), available on debian.linux.org.tw)

SCIM works with Unicode (UTF-8 locales).
Set you locale to a UTF-8 one and XMODIFIERS to @im=SCIM.

If you want to use Big5 only, you can use xcin as input method.
