But perhaps I am unintentionally sounding too negative...
The biggest hurdle to this working technically is undoubtedly the LWIP support for SNAT and routing. If the library you caption (jonask1337/esp-lwip) solves that, it makes this technically feasible.
My comments on baud rate on the UART link between ESP32 and SIMCOM are more about the practicality of it. That could be tested with a few simple modifications to our SIMCOM driver, to see how fast it could actually be driven. I know we get up to about 1Mbps for firmware flashing without an issue, and the ESP32 hardware UART is up to 5Mbps.
It would be a fantastic feature to have, and incredibly useful.

That could be increased (in software), and there is software flow control on the GSM MUX we use (although I have no idea if SIMCOM implements it); but without hardware flow control lines I don’t think it could/would approach 3G speeds.
