Your diagram was munged pretty bad, but it would appear that a virtual
link isn't at all what you need. Its only for making an ABR out of a
router that has no area 0 links, short of the changes in routing topology,
it doesn't create any actual network links.

If you can't provision a serial/ether link between the two networks to do
bridged interfaces, you'll probably need to check out DSLW (on the off
chance you've got a MPLS infrastructure in place, could also do AToM).
Technologies link on CCO should lead you to appropriate info...
