I ask about the TOS Enterprise, because I heard something about the TOS phasers getting stronger as you level up, and how it is possible to keep the Enterprise to the end.
There are a lot of ship collectors in STO so Cryptic gives every player many ship slots. So it is possible to "keep" the Constitution or any ship you own. For instance my character is a level 50 Rear Admiral who now commands a state-of-the-art Armitage class Heavy Escort Carrier, but he still have his Lieutenant grade starter ship even though the starter ship has not been taken out of spacedock in a long time.

For playing the game, you really should be using a ship comparable to your rank. So if you're a Captain, you should be commanding a Captain grade ship.

Also, is the Enterprise customizable with its appearence and name like the others are?
There are several versions of the Constitution class in STO. If you're looking for the original USS Enterprise NCC-1701, its the Lieutenant grade Constitution class. Lieutenant Commander version of the Constitution class corresponds to the movie version of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A. Cryptic also came up with its own version with a unique look which they call the Constitution Refit, and is also a Lieutenant Commander grade ship.
