Hello I am arriving on a Lufthansa flight and have 1:15 minutes to connect to a domestic American Airlines flight to Detroit. Will I make it? I have to clear customs and go through domestic security again I would think. How do I connect between terminals?

Zero Chance, especially if you have checked bags. All terminals are connected by walking.
The Zurch flight moved from JFK to PHL starting March. I now have 1 hour and 12 minutes to connect from international arrival in A to likely B or C (most AA American flights leave from those gates). This will be in May. The good news is that I am Global Entry/Pre-TSA, and doing only carry-on. I also will be traveling through PHL on the way to ZRH, so can check out walks, etc.
Do you think that will be enough time to connect if flights are on time? Also I am business class from ZRH, so should be off plane first. Otherwise the next connection is 5 hours later!!

With carry-ons only and Global Entry I think you can do it.
I'll be taking an international flight out of PHL- coming in on Gate C17 at 5:20 pm and departing from Gate A25 (A-W concourse?) at 6:50pm. What's the best way to connect (walk or bus/tram?). Is timing ok
The best and only way is to walk. You should have plenty of time.
