Bonding Interfaces gives them a single virtual IP interface. This
means that you cannot connect them to two seperate networks. as
suggested here. You can use routing and so on through another device
to interconnect between the two networks (ADSL -> LAN), but direct
connection as being done with two separate NICs is not possible when
they become bonded.
As for a good document on exactly how to accomplish the Interface
bonding, I highly suggest this:

As for gateways, the way I generally handle this with multiple WAN
links is to pick a primary WAN link (usually the known best link
[fastest/best uptime/ect]), and the router (server in your case) gets
that WAN (ADSL) link's gateway as the default gateway. Then for each
additional link to be load balanced (not to be confused with bonded,
bonding and load balancing are two very different things) you pick any
order and set a route with the same metric as the default gateway on
the router and create a rule similar to: source address - 0.0.0.0 ->
destination address - 0.0.0.0, gateway - <ISP Gateway>, interface -
