Xubuntu's installer asks for installing grub at a certain point. You can skip this step, reboot your machine, boot Mint, update-grub. It should find Xubuntu and add it to Grub. Update grub again when you uninstall Xubuntu. P.S. If you touch(ex. resize) the Mint partition during Xubuntu install this might throw you to grub rescue. In that case, I recommend ...

Copy one of /proc/config, /proc/config.gz, /boot/config-$(uname -r) from your ubuntu installation as .config inside the /usr/src/linux/. Then make oldconfig, and continue as usual.

I would counter-act your question with a series of questions of my own to know what you have done in the first place ? a. Which version of Debian have you installed ? Whether it is wheezy (current stable), squeeze (old stable) or testing (jessie) which will be released in near future. b. You haven't shared what you did to actually come to this pass as ...

I don't think you can actually choose, which packages get installed during the installation. There is some LiveCDCustomizationFromScratch if you want to make a custom Ubuntu install. But I would recommend to use some other lightweight distro like Arch

The installer now has support for setting up ZFS on top of geli. I highly recommend you use the installer. It does things a bit differently than it sounds like you're trying to (didn't follow the link), but it works well.

If you don't know exactly what was changed, can make a backup of any unique data you put on the system (in your user account) and have access to boot from CD/USB, I would just reinstall the system. The only thing you might loose is some post-install changes that you made (i.e. system configuration, extra packages). I would first double check that you have a ...
