I'm a rookie. I just picked up a router asus, but unbelievable

It seems to me that with openwrt you can do a lot.

This is unbelievable, there are a lot of packages, servers, sip servers, etc

Has up to Tesseract OCR recognition

I have a router with 128Mb I can not do much.

I've looked at the docu and I don't see where it explains if you can put OpenWrt in a barebone with two network cards.

Can you put OpenWrt in a host?

Yes you can. I once had it running in an ESXi host.
Download from here.

Here is a guide on how to do it: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/installation/openwrt_x86

I've managed too to have it running on VMWare in the past. I was following this guide then: https://we.riseup.net/lackof/openwrt-on-x86-64
