I'm confused if you've figured it out or not but just in case you simply right click on the clip in the project window and select MODIFY>Audio Channels and make it 2 tracks (I usually select "mono") and now when you re-add that clip to the timeline it comes with both channels separated.
Another solution - copy the stereo clip, and paste it to another track. So now you have two copies of the same stereo track. Now look to audio effects and find "FILL LEFT" and "FILL RIGHT". Add LEFT to first track, and RIGHT to second track, now you have two separate stereo tracks, one mic on first and the other on the second.
You can accomplish the same thing using just ONE original track. Add Razor cuts where you want to switch mics, then apply FILL LEFT or FILL RIGHT to each segment as needed, and do an audio crossfade transition at cuts.
I like the two track system, in case you need to mix the two mics to any degree, you can.

Thanks Jeff! I am getting used to Premiere, i am starting to like it a lot! it is very similar yo FCP 7 but better and now should be all uphill. Not having to convert the files to pro res is already a great step. Thanks for your response and hope to talk to you soon!
Thank you very much for your quick response! It was my fault not setting up the clips the correct way, but its no big deal. The thing was that i had already the pieces edited so what i did was to go to the bin and change the clips in modify audio. It will take a bit , but now i know how to do it next time. I am very happy with Premiere. I travel edit in my laptop, still need to learn more but i am moving along, happy to be with premiere and getting the support!
best my friend!
Thank you Jim,
I am highliting the 2 audio channels that are in A1 and selectin clip - break to mono but is grayed out, wont let me selected. If i can separate them that would be a great help.
You do it from the bin. Won't work once you use the clip in a sequence.
