Just launch multiple instances from the terminal, as follows:

 /Applications/ &
edit flag offensive delete link more


And you can provide the pathname to the file to open as an argument.

(No, this is not ideal, but there would have to be a significant amount of work done to allow one Wireshark process to have multiple files open, which is what would be required to have Wireshark work like a standard macOS application in that regard.)
