Adding a node through NAT

Tell me, is it possible to add a node to the data center, through NAT, that is, to an external address?
If so, is it possible to emigrate VMs (or clone) to another node through NAT, completely together with the hard disk?
Everything stands and falls with the latency between your nodes. This has been discusses often in the forums and it can work, but it also cannot. Technically, there is no problem besides latency, but it is not recommended. However, I'd use VPN instead of NAT for increased security.
