Not clear on your problem.

"Your 2 WD NAS are dead" - You are referring to the NAS enclosure or the 2 WD red hard disks from WD NAS?

I assume your WD NAS enclosure has more than 1 hard disk and you are on RAID. If it is not RAID 1 mirroring, how do you intend to connect all hard disks from the RAID setup to your Synology? Another RAID enclosure?
I have 2 WD MyCloud, one 6TB and one 8TB, both are single bay NAS, both are Red drive. Hard disks are fine but NAS failed to boot, guess motherboard issue. I am getting a new NAS and trying to directly access or copy data from these 2 Red drive. so I have few methods:

1. simply plug Red to Synology,
2. use SATA-to-USB to connect Red to Synology's USB port

From what I checked, WD mycloud is using ext4 so MIGHT be compatible. If you can sacrifice one for testing, just slot it into the DS and see whether it can detect. :p
If it is unable to read WD Red, will it auto-reformat it?

Most likely it will prompt and warn you first. Assuming you had WD my cloud with raid 1, both drives would have mirrored contents so I'd sacrifice one of them. But to be safe, I'd copy everything using a PC first.

If reckless and like to take risks, just ram both drives into synology ds and fingers crossed.

Single bay NAS, not raid, no mirror...

For (1), Synology will need to download DiskStation Manager (NAS OS) first. I suspect your data will be formatted to facilitate the OS installation.

For (2), might be a better option but you will need to acquire new hard disk for the NAS to install DiskStation Manager first.

All Nas should allow you to stream videos outside your network regardless if it's a Synology Nas, freenas machine or even a usb disk attach to a raspberry pi.

You could use either Plex or remote into your home network via vpn to stream the videos

I don't own that Nas but I am quite sure you won't be able to run a VM on a system that has only 512 MB or ram and a low powered arm CPU.
