Yes, you may file a joint Federal Return and separate state returns.  The reason why for you is because both Illinois and Pennsylvania allow this option.  (Not all states do allow this option).

To prepare the state returns separately, you can follow the instructions provided in this FAQ:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301995
