I would like to restrict the entry of Time Cards based on a date 5 days after any current month; for example, an individual would not be able to enter any time for January 2016 anytime after the 5th day of February 2016. 

I would also like to have an "Override Request" that would allow the user to send an email to the administrator, explain the dilemma, request an "override" which the Administrator would disable the "rule" only for that individual to allow them to make the entries, and placing the request in a table for reference. 

Is this possible?

It's possible to not allow a Time Card record to be saved based on the current date, for instance you can create a form rule that says: 

"When the record is saved

and [Date Field] is before [Current Date]"

"Abort the save

and Display a message"

You would have to change around the field names to match yours.  Give it a shot and if you run into any issues feel free to submit a support case and we can help!
