Yum for Debian needs to be a Debian package. Also, yum is a front end for rpm, which Debian doesn't use.

You'll need to install yum and rpm before you can use yum with rpm's on Ubuntu (assuming it still has the packages from Debian).
Code:
apt install yum rpm
Note: I don't use Ubuntu if I can help it, so I'm basing this off Debian.

Note 2: I've never done this, but considering how different Ubuntu is compared to rpm distro's, I can't see this working out very well. I imagine there will be many package conflicts long-term.

by the way my Debian server says :Unable to locate package yum it means i have repolist 0 right.?
on my servers there is no internet only local machines in one subnet, when im typing apt-get install it tries to get from outside(from internet) but by default it has to be his local repo right? i didnt live that much trouble in centos
also i need to give my ftp path for repo this is confuses me much. i dont knot where the repo files in Debian ?

A minimal install of Ubuntu doesn't contain the ssh server. You need to install the openssh-server package.
