The debian packages come with scripts to help automate setting up a cell 
-- /usr/sbin/afs-newcell and /usr/sbin/afs-rootvol from openafs-dbserver.

As far as a KDC goes, Debian's default is the MIT code (disclosure: my 
employer).  I expect you'd need to be doing something reasonably unusual 
for there to be a reason to pick one of Heimdal and MIT over the other, 
other than personal preference.

I'm not sure what pam configuration you want, so I can't say more about
