Does the stern light have to be on the starboard side in Texas?

No, the only requirement is height. There is a specific measurment but I don't recall it. If the white light is above everything else on the boat, and it meets Coast Guard visibility requirements, you'll be OK.

Be sure to have 360 degree visibility of the stern light (higher than the motor or other parts of the boat).
