Those device nodes should be created automatically and , depending on your desktop environment, should be auto-mounted.
Which version of Debian are you running on which hardware? Have you made a default install? Which desktop environment/ window manager are you using?

Sorry, I don't know anything about Debian on Android.
If you are new to Linux I recommend to make your first steps on a PC with a "classical" distribution.

This is handled by udev normally, IIRC. So you may have a problem with your udev install.
