You would be better off finding RedHat/Fedora RPMs of the packages in question but if that's not possible, take a look at alien. It converts between package types (but not always successfully).

That's why it's best to only use fedora packages first, redhat second, then source. Try to avoid using packages created for another distro if at all possible. Your system will run better that way.

apt is supposed to be able to do it from the command line. Install via yum:
yum install apt
as root, of course. However, with a little persistence, anything packaged as a deb should also come as an rpm.
