I don't really take anyone who tries to give Agent 3, 4, and 8 or a shipping some sort of canon seriously as a source for lore.

All of the current Splatoon shippings related to the main game are just headcanons, yes even the ones from the manga. Looking at the real lore of Splatoon is so much more than just believing anyone who's popular or even someone who is a content creator.

I was thinking about searching internet for interviews with creators of Splatoon.

There was a Famitsu one about Octo Expansion that was finally translated properly. In that one, something crucial is confirmed about Octarian lore as a whole. One of the creators says that Octolings and Octarians are different in their reproductions. This actually almost confirmed my previous exact claims about Octoling reproduction requiring both a male and a female for an Octoling offspring to be born while all the other Octarians are actually cut-off tentacles (as page 69 of the first Splatoon 1 artbook tells us).

The translation is not accessible without going on YouTube or looking through Twitter, and I highly advise completely avoiding the latter given the general toxicity Twitter has.
