Spending a little time for a simple spell-check would help others
understand your question better.

I assume this is for dom0 kernel?

You should really ask Debian list/forum for this.

The general method to download source in Debian/Ubuntu would be
"apt-get source ..."
Or go to debian's package page (something like
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64) and
download the sources from there.

Possible, but often harder.
You'll need to start with dom0-enabled kernel, then add whatever
Debian-specific patches you might need, then add whatever extra patch
you may need. Each patch might introduce a conflict, which might be
hard for a noob to fix.
