I'm trying to calculate an integral with respect to a complex value. I just want to know if I can estimate the integral using the residue theorem separately for the real and imaginary parts of the mentioned value or I cannot at all use this method here.

The real or imaginary part on their own aren't analytic and so you can't apply results for which they are required to be analytic separately to the two.
