1) There are only some hardware platforms indicated in that article.
Where I can see what other hardware platforms compatible with Tor Router
2) Are there "Asus WL-500GPv2" and "Asus WL-520GU"  in that list?

Odds are, if it's not listed on the page, it hasn't been tested. OpenWRT should support your devices [1], so once that's installed the easiest thing you could do is try to install the package and see what happens. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work; at least, not without a fair bit of tweaking and recompiling on your part.

3) As I see from that article. the dd-wrt is used for installing an
openwrt image of Tor-router. What is the problem in tuning dd-wrt itself
for tor routing?

I've never used DD-WRT, but off the top of my head I would say it's because OpenWRT has a persistent file system and a package manager, whereas DD-WRT doesn't (which makes installation a pain in the ass, and you'd lose your Tor install with every reboot).
