    No.

    At 2pm we will go for coffee.

    два часа дня - Here дня means PM / in the afternoon.
    В два часа = at two o'clock.
    ("for two hours" is either simply "два часа" without a preposition, or "на два часа")
    пойдём is clearly the perfective future from the verb пойти (to go), I don't know where you got the past tense from.

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Oops, sorry. Guess I miss the part on "в два часа".
