-Can I use TWRP to restore my CWM backups?
No. The only way is to convert your uploads like this: flash CWM, restore a backup, flash TWRP, create new backup, repeat
-The clock shows the wrong time!
You need to set your timezone under Settings -> Time Zone
-How can I restore single apps (and/or their data) from a TWRP backup?
Use TitaniumBackup, it supports TWRP! In Titanium Backup, open up the menu and select "Extract from Nandroid backup...". It will list all your TWRP and CWM backups and allow you to restore as many apps and their data as you want.
Even though all TWRP backup files carry the extension .win, they are either tar archives or filesystem images. System, data, cache and .android_secure are backed up as tar archives or gnu-zipped tar archives if compression is enabled. You can rename those .win files to .tar (.tar.gz if compressed) and extract them like a regular archive
