Please inform me of the ENGLISH meaning of the many Hawaiian or souteast Asian non-latin names of species or cultivars?

It is said that (however it STRONGLY varies with different cultivars) when the nanas are exposed to these temperatures for longer time, they start...:

individual down limit < TEMP < 10C (50F) => bananas stop growing
10C (50F) < TEMP < 16C (61F) => bananas slow their growth significantly
16C (61F) < TEMP < 34C (93F) => optimal banana temps, bananas grow continuously and healthily
TEMP > 34C (93F) => bananas stop growing again

Optimal shooting temps: 26 - 28C (79 - 83F), optimal flowering and fruit ripening temps: 29 - 31C (84 - 88F)

I hope this answers your questions.
