Since you only have one physical connection, you are limited on how you can do this.  But you can have traffic from different subnets on the same physical connection.  If you need different subnets on the VM, I would suggest adding a NIC if possible.  I'm not quite sure what you are trying to do, but this is more of a network issue than VMWare.  With 1 VM, this is essentially a physical box with 1 NIC and you can think of it that way.

Why? would you want to do this?

I would not recommend connecting two nics in the VM to a vSwitch.

But I would recommend upgrading your network interface from E1000 to VMXNET3, which will provide you with a 10GBe link to the vSwitch.

Of course not.  Create another switch and use one for each subnet.  It is unclear what is being attempted here.
