As said before http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines and you
should certainly read once more
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors to be familiar with them.

It depends on how good packages you will create and whether they will go
through review smoothly.

Well, both -- you have to certainly build them yourself for testing, but
actual bits which go to Fedora are built by plague
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Projects/Plague but don't with that yet
-- you have some way to go before you get there. Just start on the top of
the page http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors and go down.

like an elephant.
