I'd like to display a single thumbnail instead of the full thumbnails list

Add the attribute thumbnails in the shortcode with value single to display only the first thumbnail.

[foldergallery folder="path" title="My Gallery" thumbnails="single"]

If you want to use a different picture (than the first) as the single thumbnail for the gallery, add a picture with name !!! (e.g., !!!.jpg) to your gallery. This picture will be used as thumbnail, but won't be included in the (lightbox) gallery. Another option is to use the shortcode attribute thumbnails=-n where nis the picture number (in the gallery) you want to use as single thumbnail.

To hide gallery title under the thumbnail, add title="". You then should set caption' to something else thandefault, e.g.,caption="filename"`.

I'd like to display only the n first thumbnails instead of the full thumbnails list

Add the attribute thumbnails in the shortcode with value n to display only the n first thumbnails.

[foldergallery folder="path" title="My Gallery" thumbnails=3]

I'd like to display a (sub)title under each thumbnail

You have to set show_thumbnail_captions to 1 (or change the global option in Folder Gallery Settings) using

[foldergallery folder="path" title="My Gallery" show_thumbnail_captions=true]

The caption format is set with the attribute caption. It can be set to filename, filenamewithoutextension or smartfilename which displays the filename without extension, front number removed and underscores (_) replaced with spaces.

[foldergallery folder="path" title="My Gallery" show_thumbnail_captions=1 caption='smartfilename']
