I think you are confusing yourself with trying to think of two things at 
once.  Lets start with the VLAN.

If the Cisco AP 1200 supports VLANs and multiple SSIDs you can set up 
multiple SSIDs on there own VLAN.  I do not know the cisco, but I have seen 
this done with a VLAN compatible switch, and multiple APs.

Once you have your VLAN, you treat them like the additional interfaces they 
are.  They will have whatever connectivity you give them in the firewall
