So to turn a sentence into a question, one just changes the intonation?

In this case yes.

Should “Kaleo is your name?” also be accepted?

The system does not read punctuation. (Try typing messy punctuation after a question to verify.) Thus, you need to use syntax denoting a question for the answers here.
Otherwise, outside of Duolingo, the answer is to your question is Yes.

Beginner here. After several similar sentences, can someone verify this breakdown please: 'o wai is what/who; ko'u is my, but kou is your; kona is his/her; and inoa is name? Also, what is the grammatical function of 'O in these sentences? Mahalo.

I wish it would recognize things like "you name" as typos. :-(
