Well, I'm not sure about this, but theoretically, you can install

Roman, I was able to download and install debian-installer by entering
"sudo apt-get install debian-installer". Where do I go from here? How
do I start the installation process?

Not sure if that will help on your task, but you can review Debian Live
documentation here:
