comment Network WAN load-balancing over Multiple Firewalls
I do understand that having two different firewalls is just a lot of mess. Say if I do go with a HA pair of Sonicwalls or Checkpoints how would the architecture be? If I do away with the 3560s ahead of (WAN side) the firewalls how would I assign the WAN Gateway IPs? If I go with a HA Pair would the same WAN Gateway IP be shared by an interface each in the two firewalls? We have a single RJ45 link coming from the ISP's MUX, how would the connections be made

Would it help if I set up a Cisco 1941 router behind the Firewalls ( on LAN side) with a default route to the two Firewalls ( one route with more preferred AD than another) and a 3560 in front of Firewalls, one VLAN for each ISP link and one port channel each again in which one cable goes to WAN port of each firewall? That way failover loadbalancing can be done at the individual firewall itself.

We plan on keeping ISA570 because it is fiscally not an option to get a dedicated HA pair of new firewalls and management wants ISA570 as a backup to a new firewall being purchased. We have one external IP for each ISP link, that is total of two external gateway NAT IPs

Is it possible to get failover to be done between a Sonicwall and a Cisco ISA570? Also say we get two Sonicwalls, how would the LAN loadbalancing take place? We have a single gateway IP coming from each of two ISPs how do we route traffic through this single IP from two Firewall ports?

Nothing set in stone, just that this is the only pure switching technology I could find. I am open to other alternatives to achieve the dynamic assignment of Vlans based on MAC Address.
