What have you tried so far? What failed and why did it fail.

 

Can you share your Illustrator file for inspection?

Please show us something. We need to know where the lines are and what you expect to happen.

When in the Image Trace panel, you can change the number of Paths to a low percentage.

After Expanding you can use Object > Path > Simplify

But the best control you have is using the Pen tool to trace the image.

You cannot engrave in color.

So you first might want to get this to black and white in an image editing application.
