DCO gets those data from the integrated DCE server, so that "Hostname" would need to be changed on DCE and/or the device itself.

i've tried to change it from the device itself and from the DCE and unfortunately it didn't change.
Can you show it to me by screenshots or there is little guide maybe?
I want to change the hostname on the yellow line in the picture that I uploaded above.

Here is an illustration showing that DCO is getting the device information from the integrated external system (DCE):
In DCE, right click on a device/rack pdu > Launch to Device:
That may take us to device configuration interface:

Hey dear Jeff
i've done your instructions, but it didn't change the specific field i wanted it will be changed.
You can look here:
At picture number 1 i changed the device hostname to "TESTESTEST" as you can see in the red circle. But, i want to change the field in the yellow marked line.
In picture number 2, this is the reason why i want to do this - because in the alarm window in DCO there is also the same field and i want to know how i can control this and change it as i wish.
Thank you very much,

It seems you have changed the device name (to TESTTESTTEST) via device configuration interface (Configuration > RPDU > Device)
I think to change the device IP address and Hostname, it can be done via device configuration interface, Configuration > Network > TCP/IP > IPv4 Settings (which I had illustrated above).
You might also want to cross check this with your network administrator, just in case if you should be using DNS server for device IP address & Hostname administrations.
