I have a second small router that I was considering using just for a Dante star network (I have a few other Dante bits n pieces) – should I just connect that second router to the secondary Mac Pro port and connect the H9000 Dante card and other Dante gear to that router?

You can certainly do that.  Strictly speaking what you want is not a router, but a switch or hub.  It's also worth noting that the H9000 Dante card has an internal 2 port switch (in fact it has two of them, for the primary and redundant networks).  So if you had only one other piece of Dante gear, you could plug that straight into the other port on the H9000 Dante card.
