You haven't explained why you need to do this (I don't believe its possible).

Other CMS (wordpress-drupal) provide that solution with plugins. here is a demo with 100,000+ Active installations: [ redacted ]

You still haven't explained why you need to do this.

I don't think hiding the template name is going to reduce the risk of your site being identified as a joomla-built site (if that was your intent). There are many other ways your site could be identified as having been built with Joomla.
