As long as the two devices are not active at the same time, then it won't be a problem. How quickly the network realizes that the MAC address has moved from one device to the other depends on the specific implementation of the switches used in the network as well as on the traffic patterns. In principle what you describe would look the same to the network ...

On the firewall, you also need to set up packets for that subnet to be tagged as VLAN 2, and you will need to set the switch port mode to trunk.
