I don't think this message should change in this manner. At most, it should change from

This is an instance ...


This bot is an instance ...

There's no need to format in a bot's name, and depending on a bot's name could actually make the text less clear

If people would like to elaborate about their bot, that is exactly the purpose of the custominfo setting. This section is not about their bot, but about Red.
