I know there is duplicate-cn for OpenVPN. What's the similar setting in PPP based VPN?

None is similar in PPP's based on pppd. But there're workarounds as usual: running a check-script from ip-pre-up hook to check for a existing route to the same IP-address is one of them. Beware of race conditions though and use postcontrol as well.
