There is no problem mixing router types - I do that.

So long as the IP endpoints (internal) are different, IKE phase 1, phase 2, and pre-shared key are set up, you should be able to connect.

If you don't mind, asa is kinda new to me so if any, could you suggest documentations/guide, etc?  if not I can understand...thanks in advance.

I use Cisco RV and Juniper so my guides will not fit you. But I do interconnect them (which was your question).

I suggest you put your specific ASA model into the Cisco site and get the documentation for it. Same for Netgear. You need the specific model numbers.

Thank you very much and I was happy to help. VPN is indeed complicated (many variables). When you get a bit farther down the road, ask more specific questions and you will surely get answers here.
