All of your recent posts to this list ([hidden email])
are more appropriate for the debian-user mailing list
([hidden email]).  In the future, please ask for help
there first.

Debian already has multi-architecture support, and running 64-bit
(amd64) and 32-bit (i386) programs simultaneously on a system whose
hardware supports amd64 instructions has been possible for a number of
years now.  A Google search for debian multiarch or debian
multiarchitecture will both give you the Debian Multiarch HOWTO wiki
page as the first result.

Please try to help yourself before asking others to spoon feed you
answers.

When you have suggestions, please try to determine the current status of
those features in Debian (e.g. Multiarch or Firefox vs Firefox ESR).
Asking on debian-user is a good resource for this; debian-devel is not
the right place to ask these questions.  If you determine that the
feature does not exist, familiarize yourself with the Debian Bug
Tracking System <https://www.debian.org/Bugs/> and determine the
appropriate package (e.g. lxde or debian-installer) and file a bug on
that package with severity wishlist.  If you are having trouble
determining which package is appropriate, ask on the debian-user mailing
list.  The command reportbug, which is installed on a default Debian
installation, can help you through the process of filing a bug and
setting the appropriate severity.  All feature requests should have
severity wishlist.

Debian already has a number of PDF readers; ask on debian-user if you
cannot find one you like by searching with Google (or using synaptic or
one of the other package managers on your Debian system).

To reiterate, try to use search engines like Google or DuckDuckGo first.
If that doesn't work, ask on debian-user or some other user support
channel.  There is also a debian-user-french mailing list if that would
be easier for you.
