For example I've got some values coming in such as, how can i convert the time value to a field within splunk converted to seconds?

To convert the epoch seconds value you can display an additional field with the timestamp(in the format you wish. Since your data is already indexed with the timestring in epoch seconds the easiest way to convert it would be to use the IFX field picker. This will enable you to capture custom fields, Then we can run a search string to convert that value to a time format
use that custom field in a search string and pass it to the "ctime" method and use convert on the search string. Per this example
source="/path_to_epoch_events" | convert timeformat="%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S" ctime(epoch_sec) as timestr
You can of course use other methods to get the field (rex command, manually crafted field extraction), but this gives a complete series of steps.
There appears to be a bug in 4.1.6 that ctime will NOT work. This seems to be resolved in 4.2.2.
