There is a “ESP-IDF: SDK Configuration editor” setting to enable Long filename support.

Open menuconfig (see here for how to)

Choosing heap or stack to store long filenames?

Both are stored in RAM so arguably it doesn’t matter too much. A general guide though is the stack is generally used for storing small, short-lived variables such as local variables and function parameters, while the heap is generally used for storing larger, longer-lived objects.

So, unless you are keeping files open for long periods of time, the stack is probably better.
