Hi,

No, you need a secondary 5510, but if you need only ISP redundancy you able to use it with "ip sla tracking"

Good clarification on what kind of redundancy we're talking about.

But if you're talking about failover between two ASAs (either active / standby or active / active) the hardware must be the same.  There's some flexibility in later releases of ASA code regarding VPN licensing (e.g., sharing licenses across both ASAs) but the hardware must be the same.
