This forum is about problems, learnings, and issues with DPDK.
You won't get much feedback about your own application here.

You can use DPDK to build such an application, the resources are there.
But unless this is an academic project it would make sense to look around
at other projects already using DPDK. What you are describing sounds like
OVS.  Also, IP and MAC learning are two different layers; IP is Layer 3
and MAC is Layer 2.
