Question VM's with different Subnet than Host

Hello again,
I'm still new to this whole virtualization thing, and am currently working with an ESXI 6.0 Host on my Dell R710 server. I'm also setting up some VM's for practice and studying, but wanting to know the following:

My Host has 2 NIC's plugged in, and currently set up on my 192.169.x.x subnet, and am wanting to setup my VM's on a different subnet such as - range. I'm also wanting to have them be able to access the internet through the 192.168.x.x NIC, but I'm not sure how this would work.

I've read through the bridged networking model, but still not sure if this can work or not. Can someone let me know if this is possible, and if I can do this with a virtual switch or virtual bridge thats available within ESXI?

My understanding was that if you had a linux host & guest running, and you had disabled or ignored one nic in the host, you could configure it in the guest with a completely different ip - no restrictions. I've never done this personally.
