As far as plans you will probably have to make those up yourself or hire someone to do it.

That would work. Just need to tie it into the roof and not the wall, will have valleys. as my pic above shows

You could build it by raising to the top of wall, extending the wall out (double wall) to create a beam pocket, or alternately create a beam pocket with some sort of applied post/corbel/bracket. If the truss is a true truss, the beams could be decorative, with a ridge brace. The exterior wall would be a flush dormer, which could have glazing. At the grade level you need footings. (That post base could be a veneer, wood frame.) I think it's pretty straightforward. Where's sunlightishere?

Any thoughts from anyone else on how to build it? Other approaches? What about raising it up--anyone like that?

Looks like there is a bathroom vent potentially in the way, which you might want to move away from the entry.
