Id say its what cost here to do it. Can you take down the porch ceiling insulate and put it back. Can you bore from out side and blow into each joist line with cellulose insulation. Think this wont work with the insulation that is in there now. You have to kick it around what can be done. How deep are the joist? can you get a R 19 thats 6"deep paper side up to the floor above.

Not sure just what you have up there. What are how the foam is, you have to look. You might want to take it out and put in the R-19 paper side to the floor above.
