please help me name the structure.

The structure is a hexane.
I can't figure out how to label it.

could it be: 2-methyl butane
3-bromo-4,5-ene, 5-propyl- chloro hexane?

It is not a hexane.

Does the "T" mean isopropyl?

I'm not sure what the "T" is. I can't find the structure in my book:( If its not a hexane, then it has to be an octane.

It looks like an alkene that is anchored to a solid support (the "T") or the side chain for a polymer. If that is the case, you name it but it ends with "-yl".
