One option is to configure a virtual router (e.g. pfSense) with two virtual network adapters, one for each vSwitch/port group.

Yes, if the virtual router VM is connected to both port groups, it can route the traffic between them. No need for physical network connections.

From what I tried so far, pfSense is an easy to setup and use product. For how to setup and configure the router/firewall, see e.g. PfSense 2 on VMware ESXi 5.
