You could use a Smoothieboard 5X with an external stepper driver (TB6600, CW5045, etc...), that would work.
On the firmware side, 6axis support is no issue: https://smoothieware.org/6axis

No, 5 axes is typically the maximum number of on-board drivers. Making a 6-axis board would require a full re-design, and it's a very rare use case.
An external driver is very cheap, and very easy to wire/use though, if you need any help with it don't hesitate to ask.
