Well to do it using Debian repositories you will make your Squeeze system turn into Wheezy.

Um the answer is basically no. But having said that it is stable I use it with Sid and haven't had any issues. What you are wanting, this is what I am getting from your post anyway, is to keep Squeeze but have Gnome 3. You can't do that because Squeeze (Gnome 2) is gtk2 and Wheezy/Sid (Gnome 3) is gtk3. You will basically wipe out 99.9% of your Desktop environment not to mention your base system will undergo huge upgrades and possibly break your system if you are not careful.
