pinfo.cols.protocol = "MyProto"
should work

possible pinfo.columns indexes are:

static const struct col_names_t colnames[] = {
    {"number",COL_NUMBER},

    {"src",COL_DEF_SRC},
    {"src_res",COL_RES_SRC},
    {"src_unres",COL_UNRES_SRC},
    {"dl_src",COL_DEF_DL_SRC},
    {"dl_src_res",COL_RES_DL_SRC},
    {"dl_src_unres",COL_UNRES_DL_SRC},
    {"net_src",COL_DEF_NET_SRC},
    {"net_src_res",COL_RES_NET_SRC},
    {"net_src_unres",COL_UNRES_NET_SRC},
    {"dst",COL_DEF_DST},
    {"dst_res",COL_RES_DST},

    {"net_dst",COL_DEF_NET_DST},
    {"net_dst_res",COL_RES_NET_DST},
    {"net_dst_unres",COL_UNRES_NET_DST},
