Looking for DR solution with Always on Availability for SQL. Currently we have 2 nodes failover SQL cluster in production with shared disks. and one standalone DR SQL instance with its own disks. Is it possible to add DR node in existing production cluster? if yes, what will be the requirements or configuration? Thanks.

the DR node could be added to the existing cluster, you'll need to ensure that you can host a geographically dispersed cluster. The shared storage will not need replicating as both nodes with the FCI are on the same site. You'll need to check that the DR node has the same software level (OS and SQL) before continuing
