No problem

Make a field of type date/time called [Now] with a formula of 

Now()



On the form make a form rule that says,

When some condition is true 

and [my date / time field] is blank

change my date / time field] to the value in the field [Now]



if you want to capture the date/ time of tyhe recrd being crteated, that is automatically credited for you in the system field [Date Created]

ie, I'm not sure what you want to trigger the Now date being populated onto your record.
