Altering the appearance of the title bar and the title bar icon is not possible.
This matter is also described in the MathWorks Software License Agreement.
This is the same for the products produced by MATLAB Compiler.

@Todd Lmower: the file LICENSE_AGREEMENT.TXT states that the licensee shall not:
3.7. alter, remove, or obscure any copyright, trade secret, patent,
trademark, logo, proprietary and/or other legal notices or license files on
or in copies of a Program or Program Component, including copies made for
backup purposes;
@An Zo: Part 2 of the file LICENSE_AGREEMENT.TXT deals with the compiler, and states:
3.1. Compiler Programs
vi) You may not modify or remove any proprietary notices included with
Programs or Program Components. However, you are permitted to remove the
MathWorks logo icon within the figure title bar of your Application and
replace it with a different icon.
I am not affiliated with TMW and this is not legal advice.

Starting with R2020b, you can now specify custom icons for UI figure windows and toolbar push and toggle tools (in App Designer). See the release notes here.

From within App Designer, select your canvas (app.UIFigure in my screenshot) in the Component Browser. Then scroll to the bottom of the corresponding properties in the Inspector and expand Identifiers. From their, change the name to whatever you prefer.
