I'm afraid at least to me it isn't clear exactly what you meant, what the options are, and what is going to happen, ie. are you going to continue to use the Google Mesh with ASUS network?
When I started building the AiMesh in our house I added a TP-Link access point. I have since removed it and just run three ASUS products.
The Zen WiFi Pro ET12 provides AXE11000 service so I guessed your other choice is a ROG GT-AXE11000? The GT-AXE16000 is coming soon I would wait if you're leaning towards the GT-AXE11000. The Pro ET12 is my suggestion at this point since you need more nodes and this option gives you one vs 0 if you bought the GT-AXE11000. Then you would need to buy the rest...
6e (6 GHz) backhaul is an option. There are two 5 GHz bands if I understand correctly and one defaults as backhaul, freeing up the 6 GHz band for your devices. For us we have 0 6 GHz devices but only the one router supports it. I have no option for 6e backhaul nor fronthaul. It is on but nothing connected. You need to watch as you add nodes that they have the two 5 GHz bands as well so you have 5 GHz for both backhaul and fronthaul (aka devices).
You can keep the Google Mesh or spend (a lot) on two Pro ET12s. (You'd have 1 router and 3 nodes if you did splurge). To be honest I would not risk buying two for now with the GT-AXE16000 coming (and risk having issues if the firmware has a bug then all would be affected). I kind of wish we waited but it's been since February we've had our GT-AXE11000...
