Two hours is enough time even if you change terminal. I assume you will be flying Aeromexico to Zih. My only advice is to check the monitors for your gate number and double check at the counter. The terminal is noisy, the announcements are difficult to understand in any language, last minute gate changes are frequent.

You will need to clear immigration and customs in Mexico City but you will remain in Terminal 2. You should be fine.

My wife just flew SFO to GBX (Guanajuato) changing planes on Aeromexico through MC. No problems although got a red light in customs. All their gates are together so 2 hours is plenty of time.

When we flew Delta to MC we had to get new boarding passes. As you exit Delta gate and follow signs to Correspondence you will pass Aeromexico counter, where they will issue new boarding passes. Then on through passport control and customs which is located near baggage claim area. Then through security again. Head for Gate 75 where, in all likelihood, your ZIH flight will be called. Of course, check the departure boards in case of change.
