    Just install the "Google XML Sitemaps" plugin. It should work for you.

    If you have Yoast SEO, it generates a sitemap automatically so you can submit that in webmasters.

    Do you mean you sitemap is on your website/blog? This could be built in to the theme or any other plugin your using you should look through the theme settings and disable that sitemap and use the plugins. You can log into your webmasters account as well and set the location of were G picks up your sitemap from now on.

    Its simple, create two directories one for the main and one for the blog. And I assume that your blog is created on wordpress and it is installed in that directory.

    I get the impression I'm the only one who actually understood OP's question.

    OP, you can add that code to your original sitemap, however remember that you will still have blog posts that should be on the sitemap. This will be a pain to add manually, if you're going to be updating your blog regularly.

    I would have 2 sitemaps, (Use an XML sitemaps plugin for Wordpress, as mentioned previously) and submit them both to WMT. One for the blog and all its posts, and one for the main site, upon which you could add your WP blog URL.

    Use the plugin of Google XML Sitemap otherwise you may add the code which you provided in your sitemap
