These simulations are already up to around 5 ns, is it possible to change the time to 6 ns without altering the md_umbrella.mdp file and starting agin? Also, will this reduction have any major impacts on the quality/efficacy of the data?

Use mdrun command-line option -nsteps to override the number of steps specified 
in the .tpr file, but you can't do this if the runs are in progress.
