Subsurfaces in EnergyPlus and OpenStudio have a subsurface type such as door, window, glass door, overhead door. If you pick window, glass door, or skylight, you need to make sure you also assign a construction appropriate for a transparent surface. With OpenStudio if you use a default construction set, at the building level, it can manage individual surface and subsurface construction assignments.

Suppose a door with an area of 2 square meters is made of wood and glass with an area of one square meter, how can I define this door in openStudio?

If you want to do this you could create two adjacent sub-surfaces (or better, have a small gap) with the top one glass and the bottom opaque, although you don't typically see this done.
