Yes, you must file separate I-130 for each child and pay separate fees.  There will be two cases.  Everything is separate even if you send them in together to USCIS.  One may get approved before the other.  At the NVC, you can request the cases be linked so they can have their visa interviews at the same time.

I would assume that you are LPR since your case is F2a.You dont need to file 2 separate I-130 for your children. They are automatic derivatives to the principal beneficiary. Not unless you are an American citizen, then you need to file separate for your children.

Based on the first post, it seems that the children are the principal beneficiaries, not derivatives.  So, 2 separate petitions are required.
