How can I create a customized app which contains a login page with name and submit button?

After hitting the submit button, it redirects to a page, displays date/time and login name.

You could tackle this by using a Reverse Proxy (Such as IIS or Apache) which has a customized logon page. That logon page would then Single Sign-in (SSO) you into Splunk, so you dont have to type a username in twice:

Details on how to configure this are here

Then when the user logs in, you could make it so they only get access to your specific App, or at least make it the default app depending on your use case and whether they would need to see other Apps or only this specific one.

To display the currently logged in user try using the rest API, something like this.

| rest /services/authentication/current-context | table username

You're going to make your users log in twice? Why not use roll based access controls?
