I think what he’s looking for is a way to take an entire channel’s worth of data and store it in the library. So you know that Bob is going to sing on channel 1, so you recall the Bob entry on that channel and everything pops in, name, color and all.

There is not, to my knowledge, a way to do this. You can however save commonly used names (those white boxes under the keyboard for channel labels). You could, depending on the number of channels you use, leave Bob’s setting in Input 35, then patch (or unpatch) it from the I/O window. So if he’s singing into the microphone plugged into socket 3, you could patch socket 3 to input 35. If Joe is on input 24 and using that very mic next week, just repatch input 24 to socket 3. I couldn’t use this method due to the number of channels I regularly require, but it may be useful to you.

I am not sure of your level of sound experience; if this is confusing, look up how an analog patch bay works. It’s essentially the same process, but with a screen instead of wires.
