In the past I have used two identical printers on my windows laptop for printing at events. Windows spooled the printers so that it would print on whichever printer is available at the time, so it was possible to print two prints at the same time.

Is this possible with Mac?

Not sure what you're asking.... Something like load balancing, but for printers? I've seen software that manages printing like that, but it isn't free. You might be able to set up an Automation to do that, but I haven't researched it.
