Could there be a portal inside or near the sun?

    Could there be a portal inside or near the sun? Consider the magnetic field and energy of the sun.

    Quantum Tunnelling

    What is the theory on certain black holes and quantum tunnelling?

    Main sequence stars and magnetic fields and the energy. Could there be a possibility of a formation of a portal? Or could a portal be made via atomic energy?

    There is no such thing as a portal. The closest thing in modern physics is a wormhole which is an entirely theoretical construct and I'm unaware of any reason to think they would exist inside stars.

    I suggest you start reading here

    As has been said, there is no such thing as a "Portal" like the ones from the video game Portal and other things. The closest thing would probably be a wormhole, but even then it is not a portal in this sense.

    As for the theories on Black Hole and Quantum Tunneling, I suggest reading the wikipedia articles on the basics of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.
