I'd just say send the package maintainers a friendly request, at
<packagename>@packages.debian.org.

For backporting, you would want to create a Lenny chroot and build
your package in there. I don't have links at hand, but an easy way
would be to use pbuilder, as is described in this (rather old) page:
