Is there software available where I can convert basic txt files with entries (HH:MM:SS) and filenames similar to the videos into workable chapter entries during playback?
It'll probably mean changing file extensions to whatever file extension which can be read by media players such as MPC.
I'm not seeking to merge the files with MP4s or such. I just want to leave as is apart from the format of the txt files.

Chapters (in a specific txt format) are typically embedded in mkv. This is supported by video players.
mpv seems to have an option enabling use of an external chapter file (when playing mkv ?), but I haven't tried it:
I'll check it out...
I don't think it's currently supported by video players, but it's worth noting that youtube uses a very simple syntax for its timed-text chapters.
Video players also have features such as playlists (different files) or favorites (bookmarks to a time in a given file).
