Does any one know how to make a meta package such as ubuntu-desktop
This meta package contains some files. Is it enough to edit control file in there? Or is there an aplication to make meta package?

Yes. You can add your custom docs to your debian tree. Bump the changelog if you are keeping the same package name.
That's about all I know about the process...

You may take a look at: http://www.us.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/ch-helpers.en.html#s-equivs
The equivs package can be used to create virtual packages.
