Hi I was wondering if there was a way to make an input button appear on a page after an X amount of seconds?

That would be a job for JS, since it would be done on the browser side.

only if the page takes that long to load, as php is server side it has no control once the page is delivered

I would suggest trying to figure a way with javascript

You could have an animated gif that is blank(matches the background) for x seconds and them changes to a visible image for 1000 seconds. Make it your button and you won't have to rely on javascript to be enabled. Of course your link will be there but people won't see it.
