If that machine is not a dedicated firewall, I strongly suggest
to use it a dedicated firewall. I would also suggest to not use
Fedora (fine desktop system that it is) but to use e.g. a m0n0wall
or pfsense. Notice that you will peak at about 50 MBit/s with a
soekris or a wrap hardware, so you might just recycle your existing
dedicated firewall PC by installing m0n0wall or pfsense on an USB
stick and boot from there.

m0n0walll to m0n0wall IPsec tunnels are ridiculously simple to
set up.

Yes, OpenVPN is your friend. Much easier to get to work than an IPsec
tunnel (unless it's m0n02m0n0).
