Well, this might help

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/185

you'll have to add a testing repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list

you should also google on "debian pinning" for stuff like this

http://www.argon.org/~roderick/apt-pinning.html

and in general make sure you know what you're doing by means of diligent research

But if you're willing to risk your system for stuff like xorg why not just go with etch? (I've used both xfree86 and xorg and I can't really detect a practical difference.)
