The only documentation I can see on this subject
( explicitly
says "[t]he contents of another VCL file may be inserted at any point
in the code by using the include keyword", which I believe should have
answered your question, Abraham.

That page was the second result you would have found when searching
for "varnish cache include syntax", and the first non-trivial one.
That's why I suggested those precise words for you to search for.

Glad you resolved your issue either way.
