Good luck, hope it gets you somewhere.  This link looks as though it may
be helpful, although it's confusing that you have to add extra interfaces
to your WAN interface.  That's not how iptables/nftables does it under
the bonnet, it has very little concept of interfaces ...

You may find that your ISP won't support other routers, especially when  
you're using blocks of globally routed IPs.

I've run into multiple providers here in the US that /require/ you to  
use their specific router for blocks of globally routed IPs (which are  
only available on business class subscriptions).

People have talked about replacing the routers with something else and  
maybe getting it to work.  But this is an unsupported configuration and  
they accepted the risk of doing so.

I've heard / read accounts of cable internet providers in the US doing  
this and requiring their router, which did standard things, but they  
didn't tell people.  Supposedly their router used RIP on the CMTS side  
to advertise the local globally routed block to the upstream CMTS  
routers (which didn't advertise anything).  Thus the upstream routers  
could find the downstream router that had the block of globally routed  
IPs, despite the fact that said router was itself using DHCP from the  
provider.

In some ways this seems like a nasty hack.  But in other ways it seems  
like an elegant solution.

You may end up being tied to the "super" router provided by the ISP.  Or  
an unsupported solution.

Good luck.

Mikrotik routers can handle any number of IP addresses being assigned to  
any particular port you want.  Be warned, there is a bit of a learning  
curve, but it's not horrible.  RouterOS (the OS for Mikrotik) is well  
documented.  If you can't quite figure it out, there's plenty of folks  
on Upwork.com who sell their expertise for reasonable rates.
