Is there a way to title and separate different expression controllers on one layer? Like have a "Color" Section with all of the color controllers below it?

That's a lot to ask of software that's 23 years old for most of its core functionality, don't you think?

I'm assuming that that is sarcasm and that there is no way to do that? I could've sworn that whenever I install 3rd party plugins they are able to divide the UI or is that a custom made UI for the plugin?

No, it's more of a warning. Don't expect miracles out of AE.

Personally. I don't know if what you seek can be done. But I and many other people have been disappointed by Adobe Marketing over-promising, and AE under-delivering.

You can. This is called a "pseudo effect." Unfortunately, the process is not very straightforward.

This script makes it easier:

But note that even with that script, there's a somewhat laborious installation process for pseudo effects:
