The content of the summary line in Wireshark is specified by the highest level dissector, e.g. if you have a TCP packet with no payload the TCP dissector decides what to put in. For HTTP packets, its the HTTP dissector, etc.

If you need to add more details you should just configure all columns to show what you need, and then use the "Export packet dissections" to CSV feature to save the list.
