stair riser height

Would 7 3/4" be too high from porch to front door threshold? (I know it's ok for a staircase.)

not sure code wise. Are you pulling a permit for the work? Are you comfortable with the step? Its up to you.

stair riser height

That's almost exactly what I had at my front door. I elected to pour a 4'x8' landing in front of the door, half the height. Much nicer stepping out there on a dark night.
