1) yes you can add a editpolicy that will manage the display of your label.
We have done that for exemple for role of association see in the class diagram:


the editpolicy in charge to do that is:
installEditPolicy(IMaskManagedLabelEditPolicy.MASK_MANAGED_L ABEL_EDIT_POLICY, new DisplayAssociationEndTargetEditPolicy());

2) it is more complex. in the context of the diagram, you have to find the compartment of the collaboration that contains your property;
Then replace the editpolicy role=EditPolicyRoles.SEMANTIC_ROLE with your own

see example the editppolicy for the creation creation of an attribute into the compartment of attributre

in you owned editpolicy call your command that create and associate the property to the role of your collaboration

Following your instructions, i modificate in my custom common plugin, the class

and the method refreshStereotypeDisplay() ,

and i can write a string in the port label.
I have a new doubt, when a type is asigned to the port,
i want know the name of the type of the port, and i want know the the classes that the type extends, and the interfaces that the type implements.

For example if i have a class X that extends a class A, and implements Interface I, and the type of my port is X.
How can get this values(A,I), i am trying with the function ((Element)getView().getElement(); ) and casting the return type to TypeElement, but i cant obtain this values..
Can you help me?
