NUC via Ethernet and IP over Thunderbolt?


Question

I would like to install xpenology on my intel NUC and connect via ethernet my ipad and my sons notebook. In addition I would like to use the thunderbolt 3 in my macbook to connect directly with the nuc to gain access to xpenology - is this possible? Can I even use the built in wlan of the NUC as a third networking adapter? 
Or another idea: can I install EsXi running xpenology and give the thunderbolt, the ethernet and the wlan to the VM to use these as Networking adapters? Will i get the 10 GBps of thunderbolt 3? The NUC has a 1 TB nvme and 1 TB ssd built in and 3 external USB 3.1 HDd enclosures containing WD NAS drives a 4 TB each - how can i use them within Xpenology the best way?

External USB is not easily used for DSM primary storage.  You must have physical SATA ports for DSM storage.  In that regard the NUC is not an ideal platform.
