If  you  need  some  point  at  which  you see the packets toward both
wireless   interfaces   and  can  do  a  shaping,  try  using  virtual
interfaces,  something  like  ifb or veth. This is for Linux, other OS
contain own facilities.

And, as Jouni already mentioned, shaping is not hostapd task.
