It appears to me that the .deb packages that are found in Ubuntu repositories are different from the regular .deb packages that I have been creating. If I wanted to create some for a repo, what requirements do I need to meet? I hope that my question isn't too broad.

I believe this page describes how to make Ubuntu packages:

If you want your own repo for your .debs, try Launchpad PPA (personal packages archives *I think*).

Look in launchpad.net.
