Sounds like a lot of houses around here. Built in 40'5-50's, semi custom, 4 block tied thru to stone or brick. Rocklathe plaster over furring strips nailed to the block. Sound about right?? The windows likely do not have any wood framing, but would have wood blocks set into the cinder block, for securing the windows. Brick or stone sill, steel lintel above supporting the block above. You can frame the opening with 1x or 2x stock and use that for a nailer, or use the existing wood to secure the window, but that reduces the opening size. If you have better than average DIY skills, then I say you probably can do it. Remove the interior trim to see exactly what you have. That will give you a better idea how to size the windows. Hope this helps.
The problem as I see it, is a poor door installation from the beginning. It probably can not be easily corrected without removing and reinstalling the door. if you do that, you may as well install a quality door, one less susceptable to weather problems.
