The flight I'm looking at lands at 8pm in Zagreb, so would the ticket offices in the train station will be open by the time I reach there? Or is there any other way I can reserve and get printed train tickets beforehand at all?

Welcome to TT!
is there any other way I can reserve and get printed train tickets beforehand at all?
The Man in Seat 61 quotes a possible option here (scroll down till Fares & how to buy tickets and take a look at option (b)). However, as you can see in the link, to book it in Zagreb (the train station) would be much cheaper.

3In my experience, train station ticket offices in capital cities like Zagreb are open until the last departure of the night, and often 24 hours if there are trains arriving and departing through the night. So you should be fine. And as noted, in the worst case you can just board the train and purchase the ticket from the conductor. Don't sweat it.

5#4 is right. Bus is much better option than train. Beside the poor condition of the trains there is also one more plus for bus travel. It is faster and you depart from Zagreb from the same bus station on which you will arrive by bus from the airport.
So, keep in mind that you use the bus provided by Pleso prijevoz company for your transfer from Zagreb airport to Zagreb bus station. The bus will wait immediately at the exit from the airport building. In the case that the bus is not there, just wait for a while, it will arrive. Please, don't use the taxi transfer because they are demanding exorbitant prices for the mentioned route and the price for a bus ride is 30 HRK or roughly 4 EUR.
After you arrive in Zagreb bus station, just go upstairs and buy a ticket for the first departing bus for Split. Here is the link that you can use to plan your bus trip originating from Zagreb:

6Thank you for all the replies!
#5, I wanted to take the overnight sleeper train to save one nights' accommodation so I can start early in the morning next day. But looks like buses are a better choice, do you know if they are much cheaper than the train?
Edit: Just saw the prices on the page you linked me.
