I am currently using PPPoE but I think my provider will force everybody to

It's time for you to find a new ISP. NAT is broken in a number of ways. For example, it breaks some protocols and makes it impossible for a user to reach their network from elsewhere. Also, it's possible for an ISP to overload NAT, as each IP address has a limited number of ports that can be remapped. As far as refusing to provide support, if IPv6 isn't disabled, that tells me your ISP is incompetent.
