Specifically, can I use the mm/dd/yy hh:mm format? (e.g. 04/04/04 09:15
04/04/04 09:15
04/04/04 09:16

You should take a look at the -egenmore- functions. First:
   ssc install egenmore
 
Here is an example using hms(), dhms(), and tod():
 
clear
set obs 1
generate x = mdy(5,6,1999)
generate date = x
format date %d
egen secs = hms(11 27 15)
egen datetime = dhms(date 11 27 15)
generate str sdate = string(date, "%d")
egen stime = tod(secs)
generate str sdatetime=sdate+" "+stime
list , clean

     x       date   secs   datetime      sdate     stime           sdatetime

 14370  06may1999  41235  14370.477  06may1999  11:27:15  06may1999 11:27:15

 
Hope this helps
