I'm sorry but pacman can't work on Debian, as a package manager is highly tied to the distribution it comes with. They just use different repositories and different package formats, it wouldn't make sense to mix them. Plus, I don't know where you get that apt is slower, pacman can be faster sometimes but that's because it has to manage fewer dependencies, and the difference is insignificant. Belive me, I'm an arch and Kali user. And apt is way more user friendly

In fact, what you sent to provide pacman on Debian is an APT wrapper, this means, it gives you the syntax of pacman, but it's still apt.
