Well I was thinking to have 2 identical physical esxi servers, on each would be PFsense and synched copies of all the VMs (or perhaps shared storage?)

I will set up VMs from each in a pool so that if primary fails and secondary takes over, half the pool will still be there to serve clients.

More of a long term permanent solution if i get it to work as i'm thinking...

That's great - I don't plan on much vpn at all, but hope to push 100mbps+ from the setup.
