apt-rpm is in Repoforge.

First what would you install apt instead of having yum? And second you'll need to find a source to had to yum so it can install apt, but because the two programs (apt and yum) are doing the same job but on different platform I don't think you will find one.

So I think you'll need to build apt from source (see on Source Forge).
