Not sure if there is a special window for collection, but any ticket sales window can be used for collection. i think the office should begin work around 6am and cloest around 9:30pm or 10pm.

I heard that that receipt can be used as passports during the renew process, however, this is not listed as normal travel document by railway authority. This is reaaly hard to say if this can surely work out. Maybe you need to arrive at the station early in advance to collect the ticket. If you can collect the paper ticket out successfully, it should be Ok for boarding with that receipt.

Who is Marira? But I know how to transfer. You could take high speed rail from Jian to Qingdao firstly, then take bus from Qingdao to Hongdao. It will be very convenient for you. But as foreigners, you'd better take a taxi from Qingdao to Hongdao directly.
