For a SharePoint list, using flow will be a good option. Add a trigger when an item is created in your first list ("Create Requests from Bulk" ) , then use a update list item/ create a list item(I am not sure which one you will need for second), configure it with information of your second list.

Example: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Automate-Community-Blog/Update-a-secondary-SharePoint-list-using-Flow/ba-p/38201



If you stick to InfoPath form solution then you may create an additional data connection in the second list to update the data or just create a sample workflow in SharePoint designer there you can update list item from one list to another list.

With that being said, you may think to redesign the InfoPath form in powerapps because after 2023 Microsoft will not support InfoPath, hence it is not recommended.
