I am interested in learning how to use polariod type 55 p/n film . However,it seems that a proper exposure for the print will mean one to two stops underexposure for the negative.Is there any way that I can have both ?

NOPE - short answer

If you want both use a black and white neg film and black and white polaroids separately. I

You are technically correct. The difference is aprox. one stop; two stops over e xpose for a good neg is overkill and highlights start blocking up. If I am just proofing, I rate the film at ISO 50 or 64. When I shoot it for the negative I do uble the exposure time (with strobes, go in reverse and stop down one stop for p roofing).
