Can I use the security definition in the malicious model in order to prove the security of a two-party protocol which is in the semi-honest model? (I am using IDEAL/REAL Model paradigm)

Would you please explain it to me?

These definitions are from "Efficient Secure Two-Party Protocols-Hazay-Lindell" Definition 2.3.1 (Malicious model)

Definition 2.2.1 (Semi honest model)

No, you cannot do this, because, as explained further in the book, security against malicious adversaries does not imply security against semi-honest ones.
