Can I customize the name of the default commandline options, such as changing --unattendedmodeui to a different name?

 --unattendedmodeui <unattendedmodeui> Unattended Mode UI
                                Default: none
                                Allowed: none minimal minimalWithDialogs

Also can I hide some of the default options, such as the --optionfile or --debuglevel?

 --optionfile <optionfile>      Installation option file

 --debuglevel <debuglevel>      Debug information level of verbosity
                                Default: 2
                                Allowed: 0 1 2 3 4

 --debugtrace <debugtrace>      Debug filename

It is not possible to rename built-in command line flags but you can hide them using the <hiddencommandlineoptions> setting:

   <hiddenCommandLineOptions>optionfile debuglevel</hiddenCommandLineOptions>

I guess it is not possible to change the order of how they display in the dialog when running --help.

The order of the built-in options is not configurable. Other options derived from parameters will appear in the same order as they were defined in the XML
