You can't. Just save on a memcard as you would do on your PS2 and use the same memcard with every new PCSX2 version.

Do not rely on savestates as primary save mechanism ever. You should enjoy every opportunity to save the game on it's own memory card as it is meant to be done.
The reason is the savestate is like a memory snapshot and changes in PCSX2 code can and probably will invalidate them in between the emulator's releases and versions. Another reason is whatever corruption that get into the game (like introduced by wrong cheat code or emulation fail for example) is recorded and returns each time the save is loaded and pass ahead in the next savestate and tend to accumulate.
Point taken, the savestate is extremely useful to have safeguard from a normal save point to another and a bless case you die in game or you need to stop the game session in an emergency, but it is NOT to substitute the memcard.
Edit, addendum: From the above one could take that is good practice, at least once and again, load the game from the memcard so to be assured no previous memory corruption exists, this grants the next savestate to be the cleanest possible.
Imagination is where we are truly real

hmm i guess there is a missunderstanding because of my crappy english skills hehe so basically is there a way i can use my save files i used on this emulator in a future updated version of the emulator yes / no if its possible how i do that and by save files i mean the ones that i save just like if i would play on a ps2 not the one were you go into the emu menu and click on save
No, you first use the version of the emulator you created the states in it, so you can load them. Load them, then save using the ingame saving function of the game (just as you would do on the ps2). Then transfer the memcard files in the memcard folder of PCSX2 to the new version and load the saves from there.
another noob question if i set the internal resolution to higher than my TV i play on ( 1920x1080 ) will it look better or worse atm i have both internal and screen on 1920x1080 p
