We have extended a porch. I do have some pictures somewhere, they are poor quality though.
The best thing to do is use masonry block, with a frost footer, and do it all using masonry products. Fill the void between the new masony block and the existing concrete porch with new concrete.
Veneer the top with flagstone.
Veneer the sides and steps risers with brick.
If you're not a mason - this would be something you should pass on.
I can post pics. but not right now. on our way out.
