You could write a script that would do both of these. I recommend taking either the BigBang or FastBang script and modifying it to do what you describe. If you are not in a hurry, I might be able to get to one or the other in the next week or two, I'm about to have some extra time.

However, I'm not sure how to get a script to display custom fields in the system display.

I hope this is the right place for these questions.

I am looking at getting Astrosynthesis, have used the trial version a little & was wondering instead of random name generation is it possible to select a name A list of __ names and use them in order (1st System generated uses first name in list, 2nd System generated uses 2nd name etc, etc), As I'd rather pick my own names but entering over say 1000 names would take way too long.

Also, Fields Can random tables be created for Create a field for Minerals & randomly generate what minerals are present and in what quantities etc, again doing this by hand for 100's/1000's of Systems would take far too long.
