I'll be travelling to Croatia and Rome for 5 days each with Croatia being my entry port. Can I apply for a Schengen visa at the Croatian consulate?


Croatia is not in the Schengen Area and a Croatian Embassy/Consulate cannot issue a Schengen visa. It can only issue a national visa which allows you to enter Croatia. To visit both Croatia and Italy per your plan, you would need a valid multiple entry Schengen visa, in this case issued by Italy, which would then let you enter Croatia, as per its visa policy.

Your other option, as pointed out by @Willeke, is to obtain two separate visas, one from each country, Croatia and Italy.
