My question concerns a how the president of a country’s name and title are written on a conference name badge when there are other heads of state in attendance. Is there a proper form?

This one is easy. You will never get a chief-of-state / head-of-government to wear a name badge. High officials refuse to wear them. Since they are recognized, no one needs them to be wearing a name badge for identification.
