vinyl siding up a door on a brick wall

I have a 30 year old house and want to close off one of the exterior doors. I can't find brick to match so I want to side it and then grow some ivy over top to cover it.

There is currently an entry door and screen door that leak cold air like a sieve. How would I do this. I am a fairly handy guy and hope that with some pointers, I may be able to tackle this. Thanks for any advice.

Not a great idea to be growing anything on vinyl siding.
That's going to be a while lot or work, why not just replace the door with a better one?

We are changing the room to a playroom for kids and don't want to have a door leading out of the room.
