@martinf I have edited the question to hopefully be less subjective, and requested it be reopened and made community wiki.

Just FYI, as long as you are not using it for commercial purposes, you can get ArcGIS Desktop for $100/year: esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-home

comment AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'users'
Beyond that, this question has a serious lack of details and explanations, so even if it were posted to a proper venue (e.g. StackOverflow), it would likely put on hold for another reason: stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic

comment Using choice of one parameter to populate column of multi-value control ready to have values for second column chosen?
Can you describe the current editing workflow (if any) for this task? I'm thinking using a Python add-in, as opposed to a toolbox tool, might be more appropriate. They have their own limitations, however, and using 3rd party GUI libraries in ArcMap is fraught with perils due to conflicts with their event loops, however it can be done.

comment Can one parameter choice on Python toolbox tool set Display Names of other parameters?
Even with ArcObjects, the IGPParameter.DisplayName property is read-only: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/componenthelp/… There are a few related interfaces where the value can be set, but I don't think these take effect during the run-time of the tool. Does anyone know of any examples showing where the desired behavior actually exists?

@MichaelMiles-Stimson That is not the right help section for this type of toolbox. Python toolboxes were added in 10.1, and this is the relevant help topic: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment How do I automatically generate a spatial data catalogue from shape files and .gdbs?
How to make a GIS inventory? is a closely-related question. Although it has an ArcGIS leaning, there is a pure Python answer that might help you get started. Since this is a fairly common use case, I might suggest we merge the two questions, allowing both FOSS and commercial solutions.
