I want to put the RefDes and possibly other information that is bound to components in the PCB onto the assembly layer instead of the Silk Screen layer. Is this possible? I can see I can put it on both, but I just want it on the assembly layer.

You can copy silkscreen to assembly layer but not vise versa. If you want to get RefDes on assy layers only, you should place them as single text.

So should I put this in the feature request? Because I have 400 or so component on a project I am working on. I am not going to spend the time to transpose all of those. And what are the chances I miss one, mess up on one, or at any point change a component and not change the assembly layer. Seems like a lot of work that is error prone.

Seeing as you can put the RefDes on the assembly layer, it doesn't seem like much of a stretch to then hide them on the silkscreen.

This is not to deny the usefulness of your suggestion. You might work around this by specifying that the RefDef marking be in the Center. Thus it will usually be hidden by the component. Pads will have priority over silkscreen. On the other hand, it could look bad. I have not actually tried this.

I would like to be able to change font size for the silk screen.

We can add the feature to feature list.
We are currently preparing big list of features and will upload it on the forum soon. We expect that users will vote for features with high priority.
