I don't know what that is, or why BGP and IPsec and Google go together at all.
Are you doing some kind of BGP-TE or BGP-MPLS distribution system?

FRRrouting is new name for Quagga, so that elimininates Quagga from the list.
BIRD is very nice for advertising a stub network, and while it can be used
as a general daemon, it tends to be less feature-full.  I.e. more focused on
BGP and not other stuff.

I also have no idea how this relates to anything else.
You wouldn't use OpenVPN because your peer isn't using it.
If you weren't going to use IPsec, then you'd use wireguard.
