I have query 1 that pulls in all fields from one table.
Now I need to pull in 1 field from a second table, and incorporate it into query 1, so I can display that one field along with all the other fields from query 1, and output to the user.

The field unique to both tables is the DATESTAMP field.  If a DATESTAMP field from TABLE1 matches the DATESTAMP field in TABLE2, then I want to capture its TOTAL_TIME and include it in query 1, so I can output it along with all the other fields in TABLE1.

I have tested both queries, and they work fine.
How can I combine them into one query so I can output all the fields necessary?
Here are the two queries:

Query 1:
SELECT * FROM TABLE1 WHERE CURDATE like '"+CURDATE+"%' and NODENAME='"+NODENAME2+"' order by "+ORDER_BY+""

Query 2:
SELECT DATESTAMP,TOTAL_TIME
FROM TABLE1, TABLE2
WHERE TABLE1.TYPE='IMMED' AND TABLE1.CLOSED='CLOSED' AND TABLE1.DATESTAMP=TABLE2.DATESTAMP
GROUP BY TABLE1.DATESTAMP, TABLE2.TOTAL_TIME

No, I do not believe your suggestion is what I am looking for.

what are the fields...

you do this..

select (all the fields)
from (all the tables)
where (all your conditions)
group by (all your groups)
order by (the fields you want your query to be ordered by);

if that's not what you want then I don't understand your question.
