Let $H$ be the kernel of an action of a group $G$ on a space $X$. Is there a term for the actions with the property that the action of the quotient group $G/H$ on $X$ is free?
Yes, it's called effectively free (see for instance here, page 3, Fels/Olver, On relative invariants).
Required, but never shown
