Can a Component have more than one lead, or a custom field?

It is not possible out of the box in JIRA. You can write plugins to capture more data for components and use it as you like but involves some dev work.

You can create a new webwork+web-item to capture the details, store it in DB using Active Objects and then use a component tab panel to display the details.
