You can do this by 2 ways..

1) Redefine that field in the custom module and change the string of it.

2) Inherit the view and over there change the "string" attribute of it.

Copy that field from original module and put it in your module and change the string.

Example for approach (1): my_field = fields.Many2one(string='NewDisplayString')

Assuming that my_field is defined in a base model, which you inherit, then only the string will be changed and the other information (e.g. which model is referenced) is taken from the base model
