Check with them if you server is allowed to show different MACs,
many/some hoster don't allow it and will block your switchport because
of ARP spoofing possibility.

Yes, you can change the bridge_port parameter from eth0 to dummy in
/etc/network/interfaces, and then use plain routing/NATting between eth0
and vmbr0

with a second bridge (one for eth0, one for dummy0)
