Placing the fire3wall on the NAS is risky. if for some reason an app is crashed or compromised the whole thing becomes vulnerable. There is a good reason firewalls should run on dedicated hardware without other services. I'd reuse an older machine or a cheap new one and put OBSD and pf on it for a firewall and put the rest of the network behind it.
