Turning enclosed front porch back into a covered porch

I recently bought a house and am wanting to open up, what is currently, an awkward enclosed porch. The porch was originally built as a covered front porch, but then someone added some drywall and windows and closed it in. I’ll never use the space as is but am at a loss on what steps I need to take first.

Is this something I’ll need a permit for? Or can I just start tearing this baby down?

What do you suggest I do about the interior wall which will now need to be an exterior one?
