I can use just 01 stackwise cable to connect 02x3750 Switches. But, If I use 02 cables to connect him, Will I have any advantage or problem ? TKS

You need 2 stackwise cables if you are trying to stack the switches.

See "Create a Switch Stack from Two Two-member Stacks"

Roberto, just wondering, from your reference, it appears 3 or more member stack will run in a "half bandwidth", no redundacy configuration if there's a stack member down or cable is missing/defective. So you're saying a 2 member stack will not function, as a stack, without both cables?

for 2 switch, you need 1 stackwise cable .

i don't think there is any advantage in using the second one .

more than 2 , you need the last one in the stack to connecto to the first to reseble a circular queue .
