Yes: Follow the guidelines at
https://wiki.debian.org/UnifiedCommunications/DebianDevelopers - which
involves including a SIP server on the box and/or integrate with the
XMPP server already included.
When those server parts are in place on the box, then a simple static
web page can embed libjs-jssip - e.g. like https://rtc.debian.org/

Those three projects are all client parts, I believe. They therefore
all require server part above, and are only spiffier replacement for the
static web page.

Sure, please do help package more nice stuff for Debian, so that it can
also be considered for improving the user experience of FreedomBox.
Just beware that we already have a working client part: Packaging nicer
looking user-facing clients does not solve the issue crucial to
FreedomBox, which is to keep the log files locally at the user and
therefore run the *server* at the user.
