There is no Timestamp feature in numbers. You can insert the current date and time by selecting the menu item "Insert > Date & Time"
You can also make a cell in a convenient location in your document contain the function "=now()". You can copy this cell, then paste value into a destination cell anytime you need the current date and time.
I do not understand the concept of making a tamplet that contains specific data... that sounds like a document which you update. The reason for a template is to store a collection of tables, graphics, and calculations without data.

Wayne is correct regarding inserting the current time and date, but it's not quite that simple.
Insert > Date and Time initially inserts the current date with the time set to 00:00:00 (midnight at the beginning of that day), and the cell (assuming it's format is set to Automatic) displays only the Date part.
To update the entry to include the current time, you need to immediately (ie. before leaving the cell) double click the cell to view the options. Click the popup menu, and choose the bottom item.
You can also set a keyboard shortcut to insert Date and Time, but this acts the same as choosing the menu item—you'll still have to reach for the mouse to include the current time.
