Is this "other VM" going to be in a different zone?

This seems like you would have to consider it as being a completely
different entity from the VPC that it will be connecting into.  With
that being the case, you're best off setting up an IP sec tunnel
into the VPC from that VM.  I don't think you'll want to manage a bunch
of port forwarding rules for each VM in the VPC.
