VLAN setup on the firewall ports due to shortage of ports, sonicwall, linksys switch

Got sonicwall pro 2040, due to only 4 available ports i am planning to create a VLANs on the Linksys managed switch.
On Sonicwall PRO 2040 like to setup 1 port for 2 WAN links (Primary and secondary), 1 port for Wireless access point (it has virtual access points), 1 port for LAN, 1 for DMZ and remote acccess

 How do i resolve this by creating the VLANs on the switch.
Do i need to create the separate VLAN for 2 WAN links on the same port? like VLAN101 & VLAN 102 or i can just create a single vlan for 2 WAN links and assign ports on that VLAN. I believe i need 2 vlans for this. And i will do that same for another port creating multiple vlans on the switch for other services. But i am bit confused about trunking port, do i need to create the trunk port for each VLANs? how do i connect VLANs into the sonicwall ports.

What exactly i need to do for trunking port to connect VLANs into the SonicWALL ports

2 modem/router-->2 separate vlans(Switch)-->trunking --> SonicWALL X1 port (X2:vlan101, X2:vlan102)
