Is it possible to use two balanced sources interchangeably (for example, I use XLR for my DAC and TRS for MOTU interface)?
I mean, is it possible, that Temblor 10 will recognize what balanced connectors are used if I plug in two pairs of balanced connectors, but I use only one.
For my Temblor 10, I can connect only one pair of balanced connectors (TRS).
Temblor 10  doesn't recognize my additional input pair  (XLR) and continue to use the first connectors. To use the second pair (XLR), I need to pull out the TRS pair. How can I use the second balanced pair without unplugging the first pair?

I’ve just contracted support with this very question:

I have input into the TRS and the XLR, I can only get the TRS working. Am I missing something? Source for XLR is Numark Scratch Mixer (which vinyl signal is coming through fine) and source for TRS is bluetooth receiver. Am I restricted to only one input? I've not got them playing at the same time but do I need to unplug the TRS in order to use the XLR?

The response was not at all what I had hoped for (and annoyingly, the presence of more than one input actually made me choose this sub over others!):

Thanks for getting in touch and sorry to hear about your issue with your device.

Using one XLR input and a TRS input at the same time would be an unsupported use.

I would advise using either two XLR or two TRS.
