Question about security

Hello smart people. Hope your day is going well.

I just had a question about running whonix gateway + whonix workstation with a VPN and/or a firewall. Does adding a vpn afford any additional protection, if it’s on the host OS? I’ve read Whonix documents but they are contradicting. In some areas they say it increases security, and in other areas they say they do not recommend a vpn at all…and that a vpn may actually hurt security.

Also, I have read whonix recommends a fire wall on the host OS. But does one also need to set up a firewall on the workstation or gateway? or do they already have firewalls by default?
