So for instance:
The Stanley ParableGo outsideThe Go outside achievement in The Stanley Parable worth 21 pointsDon't play The Stanley Parable for five years.

requires you to not play for five years

Universe SandboxOne YearThe One Year achievement in Universe Sandbox worth 50 pointsRule over your universe for 12 months

Requires you to play the game for an entire year.

Given that I can just change my system time, and unlock these, is that considered acceptable by the purposes of this site?

Otherwise, these are excessive.

Under the cheater policy, it states that what you described is not considered cheating. I'll be disappointed in you though.

As mentioned by Uzzbuzz, this is not something we currently consider to be cheating.
