I would like to remove or change the MATLAB logo from the top of figure window menus.

Altering the appearance of the title bar and the title bar icon is not possible.
This matter is also described in the MathWorks Software License Agreement.
This is the same for the products produced by MATLAB Compiler.

Is there a way to disable the close box in the title bar? I'd like to control closing the macro with my own close button.

You can override the CloseRequest Callback to the function and remove "Delete(app)" from it. The button will still be there but it will not do anything.

Which specific clause in the license agreement prohibits changing the icon in a figure window?
(Clause number and quote of the relevant text please.)

Starting with R2020b, you can now specify custom icons for UI figure windows and toolbar push and toggle tools (in App Designer). See the release notes here.

Sir, you mean to say that icon can be changed with R2020b. But what about title itself? I want to change the 'MATLAB App'. I have R2020a installed on my Laptop.

From within App Designer, select your canvas (app.UIFigure in my screenshot) in the Component Browser. Then scroll to the bottom of the corresponding properties in the Inspector and expand Identifiers. From their, change the name to whatever you prefer.
