Is short term capital gains included in w-2 total income?

No.  It would be reported on Form 1099-BHowever, if you had stock options that vested or were exercised, they would show up on your W-2 as income (but not the capital gain portion).  Depending on what type of stock plan it was (ESPP, RSUs, other Options), would determine how it's reported.
