Is there a way to change the header field names in the "hf_ register_info" while dissecting??

No, nor should there be; a field should stand for one and only one particular thing.

If you want to add new fields while dissecting (which has the disadvantage that a filter used before the new fields have been added, such as a read filter, won't necessarily work), you could call proto_register_field_array() in a dissector.
