The first one would listen to incoming DHCP requests from external relays (UDP 67) and relay the requests to 2 different specific DHCP vhost on the same machine based on some criteria. Each on these 2 DHCP vhost would have their own FSM to reply to client. This mechanism is already available in the RADIUS world of freeRADIUS as per the vhost capability and internal proxying.

  It should be possible, yes.  Just proxy the request to an internal virtual server, and it should work.
