Is there any way to change the display name for a secondary image input in the After Effects effect UI? at the moment, It's just labeled as "Input 2", which isn't very descriptive.
In the same vein, I have an aeDisplayName set in my filter metadata, but as far as I can tell, in both the Effect menu and in the About… box, they both use the kernel name, and no the aeDisplayName. Am I doing something wrong?

You can set the displayed name for the kernel by using "displayname" in the kernel metadata as described in the "Developing for After Effects" section of the PB developer's guide.
