Is there a separate wird for trunk from nose? I noticed a lot of my former students translating trunk to nose when it came to elephants

There is no other word for the trunk of an elephant. For Koreans an elephant simply has a long nose.

Shouldn't the sentence be different in korean if you say the elephant's nose? Like 코끼리외코?
