Is it possible to rename a field label in custom report types?

When I add a field via lookup, it has the lookup fields label along with the end field's label in the report

Hi Jeffrey - sure, all you need to do, in the layout editor on your custom report type, is double-click the field, it will open up a window that allows you to edit the display label. 

You can highlight multiple fields at once, double-click, and edit multiples at the same time.

Will this change it only on the report and not at the actual field level?

Yes, Amanda. It’ll only change on the report level and not the actual field label.
