I have an AT&T number as my primary number on my iPhone 11 Pro. I have a FirstNet number as my secondary number via the eSIM.

I would like to separate these into two devices and was thinking of getting an SE for the FirstNet number.

Does anyone know if this would require an in-store visit or can I simply order one online and activate with the FirstNet number? What I don't want to happen is for both numbers to be transferred to the SE (if that's even supported on the SE).

Try the online/automated system first and if it fails, go in-store?

Since it's esim, you could just contact them and provide the IMEI number of the SE when you get it. Unless you already have a QR code that you can use?

I may just go to the store to keep from having any problems. Anyone know if AT&T carries the Product(RED) phones? Since my FirstNet line is my fire department line, thought I'd put it on a red phone. :D

From a fair amount of experience with esim the method of changing them over differs from carrier to carrier. Some you can easily do remotely others require an in store visit.

I ended up going to the AT&T store and they ordered a phone for me. I'm hoping what they did will make this a seamless experience, but we shall see.
