Welcome!

Even weeds are plants. The definition of a weed is a plant growing in the wrong spot. Whether you consider this plant a weed or a keeper will depend upon how you feel about it. BTW, its a Wisteria.

Yes, it certainly looks like Wisteria.
It will continue to climb. One good way to control the plant is to relocate it away from the porch. You can train it to be a sort of tree.
Here is one example of a well-trained Wisteria:
