You are correct.

Access Grid room  is based on a pair of multicast IP address/ports. VRVS 
room is based on virtual room number, not related to any IP address or port.

You can either create a AG venue, and ask VRVS to add it VRVS AG 
gateway. Or simple ask AG user to join Fog room, the steps are simple.
