Can't I make a router on vmware workstation pro?

The Internet provider provides Internet access to the mac address. There are two Internet ports on the motherboard.

Is it possible to connect a network card in vmware workstation pro? Is it possible to create a router through vmware workstation pro by connecting a 4-port network card / WiFi network card?

Youu need to ask vmware workstation pro if it can connect network card and keep computer usable after

choose any

However, it is best to run bare metal (i.e. not in a VM) -- part of this is performance related, part security, and part practicality (your router should, ideally, not be running other VMs and services on the same hardware since this can add lots of complications and must be properly configured -- the router should usually be a dedicated piece of hardware).
