If one arrives in CDG at 7:05am, can he or she make an 8:00 am flight to FRA?

(Using UA miles if it matters.)

If its the same terminal (except the two that is huge) yes
The plane has to be ontime

Is it legally allowed?

If it isn't, is there a way to get it done anyway?

If so, are there risks?

Does it matter if I'd be arriving on a different airline than I'd be leaving?

Are you piecing it together yourself?

I think there's a risk since that second airline has no reason to take care of you if you miss the flight.

I'd be looking to add the leg onto an existing itin.

Search for a paid flight with that connection, if there is then its legal.  If there isn't, its not legal and one airline/plane is not responsible if you miss your connection (or f your luggage misses it)
Different airports/airlines have different min. Connection times.

Keep in mind: even if its a legal connection it might not be practical and might miss the flight.

What it says is international flights need at least 1 hour, some need more. They shouldn't allow you to book your connection on 1 ticket

Maybe that's why my latest iteration hasn't ticketed yet...
