layer.setCustomProperty("labeling", "pal")
    layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/enabled", "true")
    layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/fontFamily", "Arial")
    layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/fontSize", "10")
    layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/fieldName", "ErrorDescr")
    layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/placement", "2")

is it possible to bring the output like this:

You need

layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/isExpression", True)

and you can use the expression in the string:

layer.setCustomProperty("labeling/fieldName", "concat(ErrorDescr, Markerid)")
