I'm planning to arrive to Ankara by airplane soon, and then I will have to get to Kayseri by bus as soon as possible.
Should I buy bus ticket on the station, or online in advance (which option is better/cheaper)? My airplane lands at 5am.

I don't think the price will change. I would choose to buy ticket on the station, you can easily find tickets during those morning hours. You can use Kamil Koç or Süha Turizm as a firm. The downside of buying the ticket online is that you may be late for the bus due to traffic. But if you buy a ticket for 2-3 hours after you get off the plane, I think it will be okay.
For Esenboğa Airport to AŞTİ (Ankara intercity terminal) you have 2 options; public transport or taxi.
With public transport, you can use Belko Air (preferably 442-A, if not 442-K but this takes more time) or Havaş. They probably take 60-80 minutes to reach AŞTİ and you will pay 12 Turkish Lira.
With taxi, it probably takes 30-40 minutes (depends on traffic) and you will pay around 150 Turkish Lira.
