For example, "my friend Tomoko" Is it correct to say "友達の朋子?" As in: 昨日、友達の朋子ちゃんと2人で買物に行きました。

Also, how would you say "my friend is called Tomoko"?

Yes, "友達の朋子" is perfectly fine and means "my friend Tomoko" like you thought.

If you want to say "my friend is called Tomoko"; I think that the simplest is "友達の名前は朋子です".

When people introduce their family they often say something like this...

息子のタケシです

妻のアイコです

So, I would probably say something like...

友達の朋子です
