For starters, I didn't start playing this music until I was 19 (about 22 years ago) and I still feel very "new", a problem compounded by my horrible spanish language skills. I can tell you what I know, but I also differ to more knowledgable authorities on this matter.
In the transition from percussion section to drum set, it's not really a simple matter of "substitute this for this" but the following can get you started:
The Toms are often used to mimic timbales and congas
Snare off can also be used to mimic the high timbale.
Ride cymbal often takes the place of the bell if you have no cowbell, the bell of the ride cymbal particularly.
Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez put out a great video a few years ago where he discusses how he translates latin percussion to set playing - have a look around the webs and see if you can locate it. Back in my undergrad (mid 90's) all the drummers I was working with were passing this video around so I saw it a bunch of times. He has a cow bell and clave with foot pedal - necessary for this approach to playing the kit.

Keep in mind, I'm no drummer.
The most important thing is that your drummer listen to this music. I don't care what you write in the chart, you cannot put all the dots in the right place and expect someone who isn't familiar with this style to play it convincingly. The best practice I can think of is to have your drummer just play along with this stuff, and crack open the Mauleon book to see what the basic rhythms are for those grooves and work from there.
