For DAQ, DIO you can get the device names & their corresponding properties using NI-DAQmx. To get device information of DMM, DIgitizers, Function Generators and HSDIO cards, use NI-ModInst driver. For getting device information of GPIB, use VISA functions.
For information about NI-ModInst refer to this knowledgebases linked below:
Is this also possible for Switch Executive Virtual Devices? I'd like to programatically (via LabVIEW) obtain a list of channel names against aliases.
Can it be done?

In future, please post this question in switches to get a prompt reply. Currently, there isn't a way to programatically access switch executive virtual devices, channel names and aliases in LabVIEW. However, you can file a product suggestion for this feature using the following link:
Quick update using switch executive 2.1, you can get aliases and switch executive virtual device list. I am attaching an example code which demonstrates it. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
