Is there a way for me to signify someone as the patriarch of a family, without including "Patriarch" in the entry name? For example, Different color boxes from M/F/Unknown Sex colors, box patterns, etc.?

The closest functionality to that is probably the founder (the person you start the tree with) but other than that, there's no other way to indicate it than putting it in one of their fields as far as I know. You can change the founder by exporting it as a GEDCOM or FamilyScript file then importing it to a new tree then choosing the founder. Pictures won't be retained, however.
