I'm not sure about how to enable mousekeys, but you might be interested
in the program called keynav, it lets you move the pointer by
iteratively halving the target area (starting with the whole screen).
As far as turning off the track pad while you are typing, I know
that mouseemu has an option to do this.

 mouseemu should be apt-gettable on both Debian and Ubuntu.
