I really like how the RTW mod Europa Barbarorum went about this. It was done so that Roman units (i.e Legionnaires, Roman Cavalry) could only be trained in Italy, and all outer provinces (i.e. Hispania, Gaul, Greece) could only train local "Auxiliaries".
Basically (for me at least) this created a dynamic where I would create a standard Roman army in Italy, and then send it out to whatever province I wanted it to be stationed. Once the army arrived I would then supplement my Roman troops with local auxiliaries, which would of course vary depending on the region.
This way a Roman legion stationed in Gaul would have the advantage of elite Gallic Cavalry auxiliaries, likewise a legion stationed in North Africa would have Numidian Cavalry and light infantry Auxiliaries.
