Is it possible to have a node "type" different to the node name/label shown in the palette?

I saw some nodes having a "label" in palette different from the real type coded in the flows.json ?

I have seen builtin nodes like this:
example : It's written "Read file" but the node type seems to be "file in"

in other words I would like to customize the display slightly different while keeping the type.

You can set the label in the HTML file defining your node:

        label: function() {

paletteLabel specifies the tooltip when hovering over the node in the palette
label indicates the node's default label in the editor (unless named explicitly in the node properties)

Thanks omrid exactly what I want

For completeness - here are the docs on the node appearance that covers this: Node appearance : Node-RED
