What's the difference between officer and official when they are nouns? I mean to refer to government employees.

An Officer is a one of a number of ranks in, for example, the police or Army. Some people in other organisations might also have 'Officer' in their job titles (Planning Officer), but your would not usually address or describe them as 'officer'. An Official is someone who has authority in another big organisation, e.g. people talk about "Government Officials".
