I have 2 postfix on my server ( instance postfix ), I want to separate each postfix with its own maillog?

Postfix uses syslog to write its log messages.

You can easily use the multi_instance_name or syslog_name to make Postfix log with a unique name and then use your syslogd's capabilities to write the messages of each instance to a separate file.
