It's fairly simple to clean up the roof lines if you desire.

Yes if you have Pro or Premier, not so with Architectural and below.

I encourage you to learn the manual roof tools, but this may easily done with the auto roof.

 

The software does not handle the lower pitch roof correctly using its default settings, so you need to change these.

I lowered the pitch to 2.75 so the intersection of the lower roof and upper roof  would be about even with the ridge running over the front door.

This was an educated guess.

 

I then adjusted the In From Baseline setting until the junction looked correct.

 

Suggest you experiment a bit, entering different combinations so you understand what each does and how it affects the roof.

If I were manually doing this, I would auto build the roof without the porch roof.

Delete unneeded planes and reshape the main roof. Draw in the porch roof manually so it reaches to the main roof, then adjust the ridge height to match the height of the main roof where they join, letting the pitch float.

 

Easier to do than to describe.

I am sorry, I tried to make a video of editing your roofs but the visual did not come out, the attached image shows the result of the manual editing
