Can Skyscraper 2-Hero City keep Elemental Hero Captain Gold on the field in a Yugioh duel?

No, only the original skyscraper There is a difference between the terms "a Skyscraper" and "a Skyscraper card". The first means a card simply called 'Skyscraper', while the second is 'a card with Skyscraper in the name'. So while Skyscraper 2 - Hero City is a 'Skyscraper card', Captain Gold only refers to a card named just "Skyscraper".
