Modern Windows requires signed drivers (even if they are just INF files that redirect to the system's pre-signed drivers from Microsoft), so to change the reported name in the Device Manager will require an expensive signing certificate. Since Windows 8 however, Windows will automatically bind any CDC-ACM class device to its internal driver automatically, so the INF isn't really needed unless you want to substitute a custom driver or alter the text strings.
Note that the text description shown in the Device Manager is set
by the driver INF (in this case, the presigned built-in one from
Microsoft) - the strings returned by the device are ignored. Other
systems will respect the device strings and display them
