= with def on top can be accomplished with

\newcommand{\defn}{\stackrel{\textrm{\scriptsize def}}{=}}

Or, if you don’t like the extra space that the presence of the text yields you can do

\newcommand{\defn}{\stackrel{\textrm{\clap{\scriptsize def}}}{=}}


These defines a to be b: $a\defn b$,  $a\defnn b$.
