Options to set the "Label Name" of a Checklist Label macro dynamically

Hello community.

I'm hopping someone is able to help me find a solution to a problem I'm having with Confluence:
I'm trying to use a Checklist Label on a Checklist, but I'd like to dynamically set the "Label Name" value of the macro.

The User Guide indicates some keywords which can be used for this. Unfortunately for me, the only one which could be of use is "@title@", but that one requires that the page title complies with the naming of labels. This means that the page title cannot have spaces in it, for example, which makes it a no go.

There's algo a mention of using other "metadata value in the page owning the checklist", but here the problem I have is that I cannot see what are all the available metadata values in the pages and I don't see a way to add/change these values.

I've seen that there are some pluggins which allow adding metadata values to pages, but I don't know if these values would be available for use in the macro. (In case you're wondering, I can't try this myself because I can't simply install plugins. I'd have to convince my IT department to do it and I don't want to go through the hassle of doing this if I'm not sure it will work).

So basically my question is:
do you know what options I have to be able to dynamically set the "Label Name" value of the Checklist Label macro, based on a value that the user may enter on the page?

Forgot to mention that I'm creating a template from where the page would be created.

Thanks in advance
