as several have said, apt-get is originally a debian tool, that now
works on redhat variants. whether you are getting a .deb or .rpm depends
on what source repositories you have set up to get them from (you want
.rpm).

i haven't used it for a long time, but Alien is a tool to convert to and
from .deb/.rpm/.tgz/.slp (Solaris). this should *definitely* not be used
to install any important system packages. you may also easily involve
yourself back in dependency hell, but for simple packages, can work
well. YMMV
