     What would be necessary to get it back into the repository 

The Ubuntu repositories (with a few exceptions, I think) include what Debian has
in its repostitory.  So it would be necessary for someone to take over the 
maintainership of PSPP for the Debian project.

     and could folks with less technical expertise do it?

All things are relative.  I don't think it requires in depth programming skills.
But basic computer knowledge, (bash, make etc) and a willingness to learn
Debian's workflow.   These days Debian has rather a lot of administrative
hoops to jump through, so that person would need to have the patience to
negotiate those too. I think 
is the page 
which describes the process for becoming a Debian maintainer.
