This is much more difficult than you think (I was campaining for that
feature too).

This is based on your country's way of handling it. US/UK will get you
the AM/PM way, other countries usually use the 24 hour system.

Multiple selections are possible and rather easy. Just drag the pen over
several emails in a row. And then you can add more by dragging over
another list of emails. It supports multiple selections ;) Guess a video
with instructions would help here ...
