CMOS inputs have high impedance and don't sink current. Cyclone II has absolute maximum ratings of 25 mA source and 40 mA sink per I/O pin. In addition there's a limition of 240 mA per power pair (8 respectively 12 pins). Drive strength is programmable, the highest refers to a 24 mA class (24 mA with respective min/max Voh/Vil).

Use the PC port to pulse the led.
Control the mark:space ratio to control the brightness
Use the PC port with a D to A converter (but check that the converter can source/sink the required current first).

Some kind of integration will always be needed.
If you cannot use an RC integrator, use a DAC and a up/down counter.
As your input signal is high, count upwards high frequency pulses. When the input signal is low, count downwards. The output of the counter is supplied to a DAC. A low-pass filter smoothes the DAC output.

The average forward drop of a Red/Gren LED is 1.2 Volts.
A Pic can source/sink ~20mA from an I/O pin.
So, if you plan to drive a standard led from a 3V supply at ~20mA, your series resistor would be:
(3 - 1.2) / 0.02 = 90.
So a 91R or 100R would be the value to use.

It depends of the ability of source/sink to put/get data from the FIFO fast enough.
For exemple, let's say you have an UART feeding a FIFO on one side and, on the other side a driver which is wake up when FIFO is "almost full".
If your "almost full" level is to high, may be your driver won't have time to handle the interrupt before the UART fi

Yes, 16 resistors will be the solution. Value? As smallest as possible, but it's limited by the AVR and the LS374 output current (source/sink) capacity. Assumed 20 mA there, 220 Ohm will be good (in series between the bus and the outputs of the two LS374 !!).
