Trains are categorised as IC (Inter City), IR (Inter Region), R (Regional), S (Suburban)
IC8 = InterCity 8 = the number of the train you will take.
Pl is indeed the platform at which you catch the train. They are very well sign-posted. You won't have any trouble.
R237 = Regional train #237
If you are going from Zermatt to Gimmelwald then consider going via Kandersteg. It will take you a bit longer but is a more scenic route that the Visp to Spiez line you would normally follow. You will go Zermatt - Brig - Kandersteg - Spiez - Interlaken Ost - Lauterbrunnen - Stechelberg (by bus) - GImmelwald (by cable car). It is between seasons in April so may be pretty quiet.
