Porch chipping

https://imgur.com/a/aoPOymu Link is updated
The circled red area are chipping and softening but area that arn't circled red are fine? What should I do?
I have patched chipping concrete stairs before so I have basic experience with concrete.
If I remove the chipped area would there be a hole on my porch or would there be something underneath the removed piece that I can patch on.

Me also!

Chipping is usually spalling where the concrete was not finished correctly or too wet, tough to repair long term, especially out doors.

Picture will help a lot!

Yea, that "chipping" is quite deep and your loosing aggregate. That concrete is done.

I find it curious where the deuteriation stops. It looks like the corner was a separate pour either when the did the porch the first time or a repair long ago.
