I have added many new fields to my contact layout. I've sucessfully added several email fields, but one is not of the "email" type. When I try to edit the field, the option for email doesn't seem to be there. How can I convert it?

Since e-mail fields are a special type (providing the hyperlink) you will not be able to change an existing field to the e-mail type. An alternative is to create a new field (e-mail type) and the use the Edit > Copy option to copy the data from the existing non-email field to the new e-mail field.
Note: It is a best practice to backup your database (File > Backup > Database) before making mass changes.
