Sure it's possible with Mainstage: There are several options/methods... try this for starters
In Layout mode, create two knob/fader objects. In the Inspector, select each knob in turn and Assign/MIDI Learn to an incoming controller message from your keyboard controller.
In Edit mode, open an ES2 plugin on a channel strip, double click to open the plugin GUI, and (as an example) choose the 'Macro Only' View so that you only have a few parameters to play with.
Select one of your knobs in the Workspace, and in the Inspector below, click the 'Map Parameter button. With the knob still selected, click on one of the controls in the ES2 GUI to map it to the knob. Select the scond knob, and click a second parameter in the ES2 GUI. Turn off the Map Parameter button.

Thanks CCT, this worked fine.
What are the other options or methods and which advantage/disadvantage do they have compared to the workflow you described above?

Mainstage can map most Screen Controls to most parameters of most channels, plugins etc., and also to a variety of MIDI re-mapping or to Mainstage "Actions'.
The method I proposed is one way of assigning Screen Controls to parameters. There are other ways (for example, using the Inspector.
Mainstage 2.2 has a newer method of controller mapping that does not require Screen Controls, alongside the 'older' way.

I do have MainSage 2.1.3. Where can I find version 2.2? When I run software update nothing is said about that version.

MS 2.2 is a paid update via the AppStore:

Is there a big difference between version 2.1.3?
