"the only field that shows on the standard web edit map is name"

Are you talking about the editor called "iD" which you open when
clicking "Edit" at the top of the page?

If you would like to request that iD adds support for reference
numbers ("ref") for highway=bus_stop you can do that at
https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/ - but please search first
to see if this has been discussed or proposed previously, before
creating a new "issue" to request this feature.

You should also check what the wiki page says about bus stops:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway=bus_stop
- It looks like "ref=*" is already suggested for the Reference
(number) of the bus stop, so it shouldn't be a problem.
