The manufacture and model should be entirely irrelevant, just make sure it has Ethernet connectivity.

Some DSL models double as NAT routers, so instead of a PPPoE/A client.. just configure DHCP on the proper interface (..preferably login to the router and see if you can enable PPP passthrough).

USB modems are often proprietary, avoid them.. and you should be fine.

Yes, whichever ones have ethernet interfaces are 100%. Those with USB interfaces may not work, but most of them show up as generic USB ethernet devices, which are supported as well.
