The problem are, using a swap file already have 5 partitions, because this MBP are the 2012 model, i doesn't have the OS disk and i need the recovery partition.

I can't help you with setting up grub with efi, but I'm fairly sure that's what you need to do. According to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook#Partitions, the MBR is limited to four partitions.
If you can get rid of partition number 3 on your list, you have the option of fitting the three operating systems + efi to the four partitions allowed by the hybrid efi-mbr approach. In that case you'd use a swap file instead of a swap partition. The linked page is for Arch, but should be adaptable to Debian too.
