Mackie Logic Control over midi with Focusrite Clarett 8pre? How?

I am currently using Focusrite Clarett 8pre as my main audio interface and have a yamaha digital piano connected to midi which is used with Logic Pro X.

I saw some guy selling a Mackie Logic Control DAW controller + one 8 channel extender online some days back for about Aussie dollar $400 .
Was thinking about buying it then read that those controllers require separate Midi ports to work.(no usb on them)
That means i would need 2 midi ins and 2 midi outs for both of them to work (controller + extender).

How am i to go about doing this considering i don't want to give up the Yamaha keyboard thats using the midi port on the focusrite?

I am new to midi so may not be seeing the obvious here?

Please help.

Would i need 2 separate midi to usb cables (one for the mackie control and one for the extender) on 2 different usb ports?

Would this in anyway interfere with the Focusrite midi port and the yamaha keyboard connected to it?
