Why not use VLANs on your pfsense firewall I do this all the time. 

On a side note. You can't have two default routes. You can add routes to specific networks. As this is standard Debian you can google for details on setting that up

I want to add another router to the equation for redundancy and also because we got another block of IP addresses that I want to use. My current pfSense router doesn't have the ports needed to do the job so I need a second pfSense router for this. This is what I see in Network setup now:
