Hey, well I have a dedicated server running debian and I'm wondering if it's possible for me to setup a vpn on it, or be able to browse the net using it's ip?

Yes, there are several vpn options. OpenVPN IPsec SSH with Socks.

If you just want to browse the net and have web requests come from your debian server, ssh -D localhost:XXXX is the easiest in my opinion. Just ssh to your server, and then have your browser set to use the localhost:XXXX socks proxy.
