i wanna set up a pond in my front porch but i wanna make this as cheap as possible
and what type of goldfish will i be able to put on there,(not how much, what type)
my front porch gets a lot of sunlight

To start frogs will jump away from you if you go near them. How far from the ground is the deck?

If the frog wants in they will find a way!
You can make a screen to place over top at night.It will keep them out.
They are harmless creatures anyway.

A pond on a porch. hummmmmm

A pond needs to be deep enough that fish can get lower in the water during the hot season. I'm just not able to picture this project.

I think you might also have to contact the relative authorities to get permits or approvals for a pond right? It has to be deep, it has to have a proper filtering system, you have to think about water flow. Quite alot of work.
