I enjoyed being there and seeing it but seemed to miss the actual wall of named somewhere. There wasn't as much reality than I thought there would be and couldn't get a good sense of the enormity of the facility.

No. The ticket covers the cost of the ferry to both Liberty Island & Ellis Island, but you don't have to get off at Liberty Island, just stay on board until Ellis Island.
