What do you want to be able to do when you connect to this VPN service? Usually a VPN is used to provide access to other resources on the same network, does your home network have many servers on it?

You can almost certainly do what you want using the SoftEther VPN application. You will need to configure your router/firewall to allow the incoming connections, and I have no idea what you will be able to do after you have connected. That depends on your home network.
