The reality is that migrating from 7.9 to 7.11 is not likely to provide
you enough additional security fixes to be considered adequate.  There
have been many security vulnerabilities announced that affect numerous
packages in wheezy since the end of LTS.

The way that security updates work in Debian means that this likely
extra work for no particular benefit.  You should get the latest wheezy
version of the packages you need.  You should be able to find them on
archive.debian.org and they should work perfectly fine with whatever you
need.

The only possible exception would be packages that have an explicit
dependency on the exact binary version of another package.  For example,
a -dbg package with debugging symbols would depend on the same binary
version of its parent binary package.

However, you have not specified which packages you need to install in
this way and so it is not possible to know if your use case will be
affected by this limitation.

As others have noted, what you are doing brings with it a considerable
amount of risk.  You really should try to find a way to move to a
supported version of Debian.
