One obstacle I just realized is that the center of the ridge beam winds up over the sliding door on the outside wall...so I would probably have to put some hefty engineered lumber as a header over there...or I might just change it to a single door.

Or you could put a door on either side of the support post
One that is fixed....one that opens
Might even be able to use the panel from the existing slider

IF this was built correctly there is already a hefty header over that slider
BUT may need to be bigger since the load is changing

The Architect will tell you what size header to put in to support a structural beam if you go that route. No need at all to move your door. This is normal framing.
