Your personal additions should go in your local texmf tree, not the main one.
You can create your local texmf tree anywhere you want, but a standard place
for it (including Debian) is /usr/local/share/texmf. You can organize your
local tree as the main one, so duplicate it with, say:
cd /usr/share/texmf # or wherever your $TEXMFMAIN is
find . -type d | cpio -pdv /usr/local/share/texmf
<*.sty> files can then go in /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/<package>

This is question 113 of the english FAQ. You can also have a look at the
recommended readings in section C (Documentation and Help) of that FAQ.
