A Layer-3 Instance has nothing to do with a Layer-2 vlan. you do not need an SVI. You just have to ensure that the vlans exists on both switches, either manually create them on your second switch or use GVRP to distribute your VLANS across your switches. Ensure also that the interface for interconnection is transmitting the vlan.
ex. switch A 4 ports prepared as uplink trunk to interconnect other switches via port 21-24
You only need an IP address for the Vlans if you are going to do L3 stuff like routing or DHCP server/relay.
you do not have to...
your traffic is switched and transported in Layer-2, if you only want to "leave" your vlan on side-A (route) thats fine.
If you a speaking of 2-port trunk than that is link-aggregation via static or LACP (802.3ad) as long as you have on both sides
tagged trk <x>
sending all your needed vlans into the trunk
The term trunk is different interpreted between vendors some mean with it an 802.1q trunk (vlan tagging)
others refer to is as 802.3ad trunk (link aggregation of ports) either static or with the LACProtocol
