MX and A records are configured within your DNS zone files...

Are you hosting your zone files locally ?

Yes, I´m configurin.g APACHE2 and BIND9 to work. I´ll have 2 network cards one with IP 192.168.0.x and another with 200.186.89.x. I´ll host my site on this server, and it´s going to work as DNS server too.

i'm not overly familar with BIND9 but you basically need to create or amend the existing zone file and enter the appropriate A and MX records..

See if this link helps you https://www.isc.org/software/bind/documentation/arm95

Look for sample configuring, adding or creating a new zone.
