Will this connection work?

I will configure 14 VLANs in total. I will connect all Firewall Interface to one of the L2 Switch and I will cascade the other L2 Switches with that L2 Switch. In this case, do we need Trunk? Please check if any problem with such configuration.

There will be no L3 switch and the Firewall will do all the routing.

I would suggest you attend a "Networks / networking for beginners" course and you will get this information clear. This will certainly help you in the future as well. The topology you suggest has other flaws as well, depending on the size of the network. It does not allow for expansion, has no redundancy (with your main switch being a single point of failure), increases the traffic latency
