Hello Stuart Hemming,
If you are talking about the the content view controls (News View, Content View, Blog Posts, etc. public controls) look for ITextControls in the control template with the same IDs as the meta fields. So say that for news you have Publication_Date field. Then when you are viewing a single news item in the public end of the website the news view control will see if there is a control with the same ID="Publication_Date" and set its text to be the same as the value of the meta field. This goes for custom fields too. You just have to add an ITextControl with the same ID.
Formatting date time works the same way as in ASP.NET, formats can be found here
. You just have to add your format:
