Is there any way for me to view the correct MAC times for a files that have their MAC times modified with Timestomp? If there is, where can I find it and is there any software that I need to use?

No. The timestamps have been overwritten.
There may be special situations (say, shadow copies, and such) where it is possible, but not in general.
