By reading your question, I would solve your problem by creating one document library. Name it for example "Attachements". Then add multiple lookup columns in the first list to this new created "Attachements" document library. Important is to set "Select multiple values"

Then the users just needs to add the files to the document library and then create/edit the listitem to select the correct attachements...
