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.
