I have some xlsx files that have a header (red) and a body (blue), see below:
This is how I am handling the data:
Everything works, but I have noticed that importing the files twice doubles the size of the pbix file and the time it takes to load.
Is there any way I could split the process after importing everything just once? Something like:

You can link to file once and Reference the file multiple times instead of duplicating the query.

After my research, I'm afraid it couldn't achieve in Power BI for now. For your requirement, you can come up with a new idea and add your comments there to make this feature coming sooner.
I think what you need is how to optimize your model to reduce the size of the PBIX file to improve the performance. The following resources may be helpful:
