When I adjust the properties of window frame/divider objects, it asks for a frame 'conductance'. According to previous forum responses, this is not the same thing as U-value even though the units are the same ( I only know about the typical U-values of frames (e.g 0.9 (IP) for thermally broken aluminum)- how do I convert that to a 'conductance'?

As advised in the answer to the question you referred to above you should use the Berkeley Lab WINDOW software. It is quite easy and straight forward and then you can export (using report button) an idf file with the window data.
