Calibre puts all books into a library. You can put that library anywhere you want and you can move it around. See the pulldown triangle near the books icon. When you convert a format, Calibre always puts the new format into the library with the old format. You can't change that. Once the new format is created, you can export it out of the Calibre library with any name and to any folder you want. You control that with Preferences|Add/Save|Saving books.
(Now called "Preferences|Import/Export|Saving books to disk.")
