时间 and 时候 are different:
1. 时间 refers to the year, month, day, time (hour and minute) which can be indicated by a number. 时间 can be a point of time or a period of time.
2. 时候 refers to a specific time point or a time period. In a sentence, "...的时候" always appears as the adverbial adjunct. Additonally, "什么时候...?" is asking for the time.
