I really sympathize with these two child.

There is no solution in Malaysia for such cases at this point of time.(Personal view).

Personal Suggestions.
1. Mother surrender to Immigration and go back to own country.
2. Bring children along.
3. Father goes over and marry her there legally and get legal status for the children.
4. After period of ban, bring all 3 back, get married here again.
5. If the father's name is in the red COB, apply for Mykid/MyKad.
6. If not in, have to go through a sponsorship process and most probably adoption process. (this process I am not clear, different couples tell me slightly not the same process as all their circumstances are different).

No doubt the process will be long and tedious. 
But for the sake of this two kids, it is worth every minute. They are neither here or there now.

Is it possible to apply passport for this 2 kids with current situation of holding red color COB.
A Malaysian passport can be issued with an application accompanied by a MyKid/MyKad.
The red COB is just to certify that this child is born in Malaysia to this woman, with no legal status.
Personally I feel that this is just a piece of useless paper once they reach 18 years old. This paper cannot be used to sit for public exams.
So do things the proper but tedious way now.
The children are young.
Things can be rectified with the two parents still in good terms.
If one parent dies now, the future of these two child is more bleak.

This paper cannot be used to sit for public exams.

The children can attend public school and sit for public exams.

Just have to pay the full fees, similar for foreign expat children.

Some people opt for home schooling to save costs.

2. What is the consequence for the kids future in term study, working and applying for banking relate matter if they holding the red color COB?

They can work and open bank accounts, no problems.

After 10 years staying in Malaysia, they can apply for full citizenship.
Since they are born here, their chances of getting full citizenship is high.
