And if there will be any type of limitations in this setup.

Hi,

Yes, this will work, we recommend using compatible SFPs. Please refer https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortiswitch/hardware/compatible-transceivers?model=all

and https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortiswitch/7.0.4/fortilink-compatibility
