 In Shanghai:
Most of bullet types are operated at Hongqiao Railway Station. Next to Hongqiao Airport, it is convenient for those who catch the flights. Besides, Hongqiao Station is easily accessible by subway line 2 and line 10 and city buses.

A few of them use the Main Railway Station, which is closer to the city center and subway line 1, line 3 and line 4 have a stop there.

 In Xuzhou:
Most of them are operated at East Railway Station, an important transportation hub serving many major high speed railways. Although not that close to city center, transportation here is very convenient.
 
Only a few of them run to/from the Main Railway Station which is close to the city center.
 
Most of them just stop in Xuzhou for several minutes. So you'd better prepare everything beforehand and move quickly to get off or get on in time.

Coaches VS. High Speed Trains

Passengers can take coaches travelling between the two cities. But it takes 7 hours, longer than a high speed rail travel. In consideration of the inconvenience of obtaining a coach ticket in advance too, you are not advised to take a coach.

For public transfer, you can use metro line 7 to Jing'ansi and then change line 2 there to reach hongqiao station. It may takes around 50min on the way.

You can use "transfer" option at station and back to waiting hall for the second train. The whole process is not very hard. But it is still better if you prepare 0.5 to 1 hour for this transfer.

There is no rail service in Sihong. If you want a high speed rail to a nearby city, I think you may take Bengbu into consideration. You can then take a bus from Bengbu to Sihong. Or maybe a direct bus from Shanghai to Sihong.

There are no direct trains between the two cities. You can have a transit in Jinan, Zibo or Weifang.
