This is your ADSL router(s) config.

These are rules on your linux machine to send traffic back on the same
link they came from.

This can be done by switching the rule table above. Obviously NAT is
being used. However, this will break. You cannot initiate a connection
to one IP and match the reply or ack for that connection from another
IP. TCP/IP basics. Assymetric routing works when no address translations

One way of doing this would be:
1. Set the routers to bridge mode.
2. Assign the ISP IPs to the NICs.
3. Source NAT rules use ISP1_IP and routing rule redirects it to link
connected to ISP2. Flip similarly for ISP1.
Let us hope your ISP2 does not filter out traffic having source outside
his subnet when it arrives from within.
