I have a view in SharePoint online where I need to override column name with a custom value.

Is it possible to do this using JSON View Formatting?

If you want to change the column header and keep the list view as a standard SharePoint list view then No.

It is not possible to just change the column headers using JSON formatting.

If you want to customize the complete view and create a custom header then you can do that using view formatting. Check below View sample for reference:

Custom Header

Note: Creating a custom header removes the standard features such as menus, sorting, moving, resizing, etc. In addition, the sticky header feature is now gone.
