I recently made a transfer; and, when running show_transfers in the CLI wallet, the transaction reflects a date format of HH:MM:ss AM/PM. All the other transactions in that output are reflected as YYYY-MM-DD.

Is there a way to change/customize the date format for individual transactions or for the overall output of show_transfers? If so, the way to do it is currently not reflected in the help output.

There are no such options. There are two different date/time formats, selected based on the age of each transaction, as seen in src/simplewallet/simplewallet.cpp, function get_human_readable_timestamp. If the transaction is older than a day, the timestamp will be YYYY-MM-DD, otherwise it'll be the more precise HH:MM:SS.
