You would not need to do any of that when using Tailscale/Headscale

Tailscale/Headscale would not solve any ISP connection issues.
That said, it uses it's own private address space (both v4 and v6) 
allowing you to just ignore what the ISP is doing.
Basically, it's a creative and very functional way to use Wireguard and 
IMHO it's worth looking at and learning.
