Is it possible to change the default Name field on the RSForm Pro registration form to a hidden one and populate it from the values entered from other custom fields, e.g., Firstname, MI, Lastname, using the placeholders?

I need those separated so I can sort users by last name, etc.

Well, that turned out to be both complicated and simple, ha ha.
Ended up having to make a new hidden text field called "fullname" and put "Your Name" in the default field.

Then I added this script to the form's Form Properties/PHP Scripts tab in the "Script called on form process" section:
if(empty($invalid)){
$_POST['form']['fullname'] = $_POST['form']['firstname'].' '.$_POST['form']['lastname'];
}

Those are my field names. You need to use yours.
I tried it with a middle initial fieldname section too, but something wasn't working so I removed it from the above.

Works on Joomla 3.9.12 and RSForm! Pro 2.2.6!
