Normally this should work as long as both processors have same \ more or less feature sets with same manufacturer wrt Hyper-V
Because starting from 2008 R2, You can set processor compatibility in VM properties

The Migrate to a physical computer with a different processor version setting ensures that the virtual machine uses only the features of the processor that are available on all versions of a virtualization-capable processor by the same processor manufacturer. It does not provide compatibility between different processor manufacturers.

Using hyper-v cluster with different CPU manufacturer will not work most probably but You need to test this even if some how you managed to work with it, still you will not get official support from Microsoft probably
Check below sheet

In case of Hyper-V replica you can use different processor architecture
