Connecting splitters that have this space inbetween should be connectable. Sometimes it works on a weird angle but sometimes on another place it doesn't work. Those pictures above are two examples: 

1. it doesn't work doesn't matter what I do 

2. it works every time on the same space that i have to aim

both examples are build on platforms with the same splitters and the same space inbetween

it would be nice to know what i can do to connect them and it would be good if this becomes a update that makes it easier to connect them

maybe it could be better to have mergers/splitters snap to one another the same way conveyor lift do

No. Because I have splitters and mergers that close specifically because I know I won't (need to) connect them.

I don't know what angle you tried it at but I find it easier to connect splitters from the top. At least that is the case when connecting a spliter to a machine right next to it.

Anyway: I agree that you should be able to connect them easier.
