My paid add-on (Bit-Booster for Bitbucket Server) lets you squash a PR before merging it using a "Squash Button" on the PR screen.  It also lets you adjust the commit message and commit author for the squash.

Note:  with Git in general you cannot edit a commit message *after* a merge.  You must edit it before you merge.   Assuming your 'master' branch does not allow rewriting history, once a commit arrives on 'master', you can never change it in any way.
