Hey,
There are differences between VRR and VRRP ?
Would it be possible to Communicate between Mellanox Switch and Cumulus by VRRP ?

Thanks,
Noam.

Cumulus VRR achieves the same thing and is fully supported. However there is a KB article explaining how to configure VRRP if that is preferred.

I would strongly encourage you to check out VRR. It's very simple conceptually and to configure. Plus it doesn't need to run, yet another, protocol. The documentation for it is here:

No. VRRP is a protocol and requires two systems to have two-way communications to successfully work.

In contrast, VRR performs the gateway function using anycast concept where both ToR switches will be configured with the same virtual-address and the packets arrive at ToR-1 or -2 depending on the host (sending device) L2 hashing algorithm

@Noam2710 in CL 3.7.4 we introduced VRRP (it's in FRR). So if this is important to you, please try it out
