Create Hyper-V Cluster with different netwok speeds

I have a branch office with 2 individual 2019 Hyper-V servers => single point of failure, maintenance only possible on Sundays/holidays.
I now want to build a Win 2019 cluster with redundant ISCSI SAN.
The servers each have 2x 1Gbits in the company network and 2x 10Gbits in the SAN network.

Planned reconstruction:
Set up two SET (Switch Embedded Teaming).
A SET with both 1Gbits NICs for VMs and management.
A SET with both 10Gbits NICs for iscsi, csv, live migration...

Creating the vSwitches:
New-VMSwitch -Name "vVM" -NetAdapterName "Gbits1_1","Gbits1_2" -EnableEmbeddedTeaming $true
New-VMSwitch -Name "vOther" -NetAdapterName "Gbits1_1","Gbits1_2" -EnableEmbeddedTeaming $true

Creating the vNics:
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "MGT" -SwitchName "vVM"
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "iscsi1" -SwitchName "vOther"
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "iscsi2" -SwitchName "vOther"
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "csv" -SwitchName "vOther"
Add-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "LiveMig" -SwitchName "vOther"

Would the structure work like this and can I use MPIO together with the two virtual iscsi networks?
