The version name is a name you will use to uniquely refer to new versions of an image. Use the "Caption" to document the image.
Most of the Metadata terms are governed by the EXIF or IPTC standard conventions, so you will not find this information in the Aperture documention.
See for example:

Do all of the fields/info stay with the photo if I export from Aperture?
Aperture will export all exif, IPCT, and most of the Aperture tags when you export an image version. If you export the original image, you can select to create an accompanying sidecar file with metadata tags.

To display the metadata tags you need to edit the metadata overlays for the different views - Browser, Grid view. Click the little baggage label badge over the browser, for one of the many ways to edit and configure themetadata overlays.
The "Caption" is enabled in the "IPTC > Content" section of the metadata. Enable it in the left column of the "Edit" panel and drag it to the top of the list in the "Display order" column, to ensure it will be displayd, if the space is not sufficient.
