Depends what you mean by "firewall module". On software based routers, you'll need an IOS that includes the firewall feature set. On somthing like the 6500, believe you'll need the FWSM (firewall service module - hardware).
these Vlans 995 and 996 need to exist only at layer2 on the chassis supervisor.
They are L2 trunked to the internal 6 GE etherchannel between chassis and FWSM.
you should use a dedicated physical GE link in vlan 995 between the two chassis
and another GE link for vlan 996 between the two chassis.
Avoid to have vlans 995 and 996 carried on the L2 generic trunk between chassis (that would be preferred by STP if it is 10GE or bundle of multiple GE) or modify STP costs for each vlan so that it is not preferred.
