I cannot see where these would be appropriate for a firewall, as they
have only a single Ethernet port onboard, with a second needing to be
added via the Mini-PCI socket - a rather expensive option.  Aside from
that, it should work fine.  Their regular VIA EPIA boards at least have
a standard PCI slot for easier addition of another Ethernet port or two.

I cannot see why these wouldn't work.  I don't know, nor does anything
seem to mention, the Ethernet controllers, but it is unlikely to be
anything too esoteric.
