one? I suspect one.

somehow get Verizon to separate the DSL billing from my phone billing
before porting my main phone number over?

The only way you can port a number used as a distinctive ring, is to first have it set up as a separate line, then port it after that has been done. Generally, you also need to make sure that the new line is set up under its own account, and not as a secondary line under your primary account. If your plan is to port both numbers at once, this might not be the case. All of this is going to run into some money.
So. your pre-port actions are:
1) Pull DSL out to its own line
2) Get a new line with your distinctive ring number
3) Initiate port
And beware ... Verizon's incompetence can be stunning ... particularly if it is remotely complicated. I am in the process of having my distinctive ring number set up as a separate line, so that I can port over my primary number. After dozens of phone calls, and 2 days waiting at home for service that never arrives, I still don't have a 2nd dial tone. Good luck.
