I know there is a super old mod for phpbb that allowed display name and username to be different but is there a current mod or way to make that happen?

Since 3.2.x you have the possibility to modify / add the custom profile fields; With this you can add your own fields and you can also do it as an option required for registration. See options in: ACP - Users and Groups - Users - Custom profile fields.
