Debian's standards for packages are quite extensive (see debian policy:
https://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ ). As annoying as debhelper
can be, it exists for a reason.

Unfortunately you are probably not going to be able to generate a fully
policy-compliant package from a script. There would be no need for
package maintainers if you could!

In terms of improving your package, I would look at lintian and fix up
the issues it reports, then bring the package to debian mentors and see
what comments they may have
