Is it possible to add the description from an SNMP (oid) sensor at the sensor overview page? When sensors have multiple outputs it's recognizable for example the helpdesk.

this is not possible at the moment, sorry.

But you could use the comments tab when looking at the sensor to add information for e.g. the help desk.
