You can reuse a compete iceweasel profile from your backup of 
/home/user(s)  I share one profile with my "old lenny", it just gripes 
about extensions sometimes.
I don't know kmail, maybe similar.

dpkg -l  | grep kde > kde.list

writes a list of installed kde3 stuff. Most Trinity packages have the 
same name with a -trinity suffix, compare with what's in Trinity repos. 
You can edit the list and pass it to apt.

There are a few other steps before upgrading Lenny e.g. a later kernel

A clean base install might be easier.
