The other option is to just put in a multiport network card and making each port a different network. No need for VLAN then. You will then be able to setup firewall rules to block traffic from crossing from one VLAN/LAN to the other.
Yeah, I was on the verge of getting the Intel I210s when I came across these 10Gtek ones where pretty much every review said "Works great with PFSense!" so I took it as a sign.

Unfortunately, the on-board network chipset is a Realtek one and I've heard those are very hit and miss. Leaving that one out, I'll have 4 ports and I'm thinking of having 1 for modem, 1 for the wireless access point (this is the port I'd want the VPN on), and 2 for hardline connections (PS4 and gaming rig, no VPN).

It is what it is.
