I know nothing about Windows mobile devices. If it will run VirtualBox,
and the Android VM can reach the Internet, sure. That way, you can run a
VPN client on the W10, and connect the Android VM through it. Or via
Tor, if that works.

Sites like that provide shared virtual mobile numbers. Some services
won't accept them. Also, phone numbers for WhatsApp accounts are really
the account IDs. So you need something that's ~permanent. Using that
site I linked, you actually buy SIMs. They just plug them into their
system, when you need to use them. As far as I know, they don't charge
"rent" for SIMs. You just buy "five uses" (or whatever) packages.

Find out whether WhatsApp really needs UDP. If it does, you can email me
off-list, and we can discuss options.
