Is post meridiem the same as postmeridian or post meridian?
Yes and no.
Post meridiem and postmeridian (as one word) both mean afternoon. Post meridiem is Latin, whereas postmeridian is an American word which came later.
Post meridian (as two words) does not typically mean afternoon. A meridian could be a line on the globe stretching between the two poles, a high point, or channels in the body along which energy runs in some medicinal practices. Post as an adjective means after, while post as a noun could be a tall stake in the ground or mail. The phrase "post meridian," could mean several things, for example "after a high point." A stretched meaning of post meridian could be "after the sun's highest point," which occurs at noon.
