I know this is an older guide, I but I used it to solve an issue I was having. Would I still be able to use OpenVPN on this setup or do I have to have dhcp, etc. turned on to do so?

DHCP has to do with assigning local IP's to your connected devices. A VPN is used to established an encrypted connection. You can run it with or without DHCP depending if you're using your mobile router in bridge/bypass mode connected to a second router which serves DHCP instead. Generally you don't want two routers on the same network both serving DHCP, it can create conflict.

OpenWRT/LEDE does not have a true bridge mode. The closest configuration to bridging is to DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) all traffic from the gateway router (WE826) to a secondary router/device (MAIN ROUTER) which will handle the DHCP and Firewall.
Does this break the custom TTL settings in GO if I follow the tutorial? Meaning will my TTL still be reported as 65 to tmobile even though my ER12 is taking care of all the router functions?

iptables should apply the mangle to all traffic through the interface specified. I think at least.
