I am using RPi3 as syslog server and sending syslog from my AX-86u to it. I am wondering if there is a way to send iptables from the router to RPi3?
I am running latest Merlin on the router.

Send it to where on the Pi? For what purpose and when to send it?

Unlike the syslog, the firewall is pretty much static once configured. Are you asking for each change to the firewall be reported to the RPi? I suppose you could use the firewall script to dump the output from iptables to a file and use scp to send it to the RPi. However, it's not clear what benefit this would provide.

I want to capture the geoip of the connected IPs and send it over to grafana. doing it from syslog is too much of a pain. so was wondering if getting dump IPtable will help.

That's not really iptables, that's more like connection tracking.

What do you suggest is the most optimized way to get this? I am also looking to fetch router's resource usage & temp (cpu and ram) and also current b/w flowing through it. If possible current b/w per client.
