This is quite slow but if I understand what you want

f[t_?NumericQ, p_?NumericQ] :=
 NIntegrate[(t + x)/(1 + p + x), {x, 0, 1}]

SphericalPlot3D[1, {t, 0, 2 Pi}, {p, 0, Pi},
 ColorFunction ->
  Function[{x, y, z, t, p, r}, Hue[f[t, p]]],
 Mesh -> 10,
 MeshFunctions ->
  {Function[{x, y, z, t, p, r}, f[t, p]]}]

I've used ColorFunction and MeshFunctions before, but they seem to work only on analicial functions, my function is numerical integration in given point and returns a number. Is there any way to plot that kind of graph (colored sphere depending on a value) or can anybody suggest other ways to represent this.
