Please I 'd like to cofigure Mach 3 to control the A axis which carry grinding disc to rotate 90ْ when change direction from X+ to Y+ and rotate 180ْ when change direction from X+ to X- or from Y+ to Y-

That would be handled in your CAM program.

You need to configure  an A axis in Mach and it should be rotary.
If hand coding, ie; G00 A 180 would rotate the A 180 degrees and at a set federate, G01 A 180 F1 would rotate the axis at a feed rate.
Read the Mach manual for all that applies to a rotary axis.
If not hand coding, you need CAM software to generate the code for use by Mach.
