1) how to limit the connection to few mac addresses

That's a feature of your wifi AP and/or router and thus not related to Wireshark.

2)how to check out the usage done by each mac addreese.

Please read the Wiki about WLAN Capturing and search this site for similar information

http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/WLAN

As soon as you captured the wifi/wlan traffic, go to

Statistics -> Endpoints

That will bring up a windows with an overview of the MAC addresses and the amount of traffic sent/received by those devices.
