I know it's unlikely (TP link representitive said it's impossible) but is
there any way I can add a printer that is connected to my Tp Link Touch P5
router? It's possible in Mac and Windows but is it possible in Arch ?

Your link didn't work.
A quick search with Google revealed that the rep was right (somewhat). TP
Link uses a tool to hide all those scary details associated with network
printing and that tool is only available for Windows and MAC.

The good news is these tools are usually unnecessary.  Most of the time
it's just 9100 printing.
Your quicketst route would be to just try it;
- connect the printer
- look up the IP adress of the router
- install & configure cups

Do some reading on cups configuration,  after that, it's probably 5 minutes
work ;).
