Do you really need printserver on pfSense for device that already have one?

pfSense is not a print server. Get a Raspberry Pi or other cheap ARM board to be your print server.
pfsense is a firewall, not a printserver.
There is also no reason to connect that to the firewall in any way. It is a network printer. Devices on your network will contact it directly over the network, it is its own print server.
