When I use the MoveFile() or MoveFileEx() win32 API functions procmon shows that the application is doing a CreateFile() ... and then SetRenameInformationFile

Where is SetRenameInformationFile within the win32 API?  Google pretty much only finds references to procmon meaning the name "SetRenameInformationFile" must be something the sysinternals developers invented.

MoveFile internally calls MoveFileWithProgress(W/A) and MoveFileWithProgress(W/A) calls NtSetInformationFile. I think that ProcMon shows this NtSetInformationFile as SetRenameInformationFile.
