Yes, VoIP via UDP works very well through Tor with OnionCat. However,
both endpoints must be running Tor and OnionCat. Basically, all devices
running Tor and OnionCat have IPv6 addresses in the same /48 subnet. So
any such device can connect with any other. But _not_ with any other
IPv6 (or IPv4) address. Unless someone setup a router, I suppose.

Yes, you can route VPNs through Tor. However, I don't recommend doing
that except in Whonix. Otherwise, there's too much risk that the VPN
will connect directly, instead of through Tor, and blow your anonymity.

You could use a commercial VPN service, or run your own VPN server in a
VPS. But either way, you'd need to do everything ~anonymously through
Tor. Or in other words, your anonymity using the VPN via Tor will be
limited by how anonymously you paid for the VPN service or VPS. So that
means well-mixed Bitcoin, or better perhaps Monero.

All things considered, it'd be simpler, and arguably more anonymous, if
you can force Jitsi to use TCP via plain Tor.
