It's arguably better to have a separate and dedicated device for VPN termination. Best practice would actually have the VPN terminating at your perimeter. Can you run Wireguard on your firewall?

I have a similar setup as described by @flyride. Pfsense is directly connected to my ISP's modem and I have OpenVPN set up on it. I also have the OpenVPN setup on the XPEnology in-case for some reason I cannot access Pfsense's OpenVPN but if that happens it usually means the ISP is down or a power outage anyway.
