There is not a way to hook or define a format for this that I know of.
For helm-bibtex, you might be able to redefine or advise
bibtex-completion-apa-format-authors to handle that.

this is also not currently customizable. The description in cite links
is used for pre/post text in the citations, and they are shown in full
display so you can see the key and pre/post text. If you use the
description for anything else, the latex export will probably not be
what you expect.

You can turn off the full display like this:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(loop for cite in org-ref-cite-types
  (org-link-set-parameters cite :display nil))
