How do you convert the integer date inside the created and changed fields so that I can create a regular date?

You can try the PHP date() function. This is the code I use to theme my Event nodes:

<?php
echo date("D, j M, Y \a\\t G:i", $event_start) ?>

More info here: http://uk.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

You can also use the drupal function format_date()
This function will respect the timezone setting for the site and allows you to specify one of the standard drupal date formats or your own custom format:

<?php
// to use the standard drupal date format 'medium'
format_date($timestamp);

// to use a different drupal date such as 'small' or 'large'
format_date($timestamp, 'small');
format_date($timestamp, 'large');

// to use a custom format
format_date($timestamp, 'custom', 'D, j M, Y \a\\t G:i' );
?>

the custom type takes the same format rules as the php date function and the standard formats can be changed at /admin/settings

For Drupal 6 the format_date() function also localizes the date.
Don't know if it is true for Drupal 4...
