Opening files in one program then another (sigil then calibre), converting to mobi then back to epub, that all sounds like a pain in the a$$. I don't have a NC so I can't see what works or doesn't (and it seems from reading this thread that some things work for some and for others not), but this could be a deal breaker for me. One of the reasons I got a NOOK is because I knew I could root it and see all of my covers, so I would expect the same from a NOOKcolor.
You don't have to use both programs. I've just been using calibre to get the covers to stick. I only use Sigil when I have other format issues that I want to fix. Sometimes the covers are there. Maybe you'll get lucky. Sometimes EPUB to EPUB is fine. EPUB to MOBI to EPUB is a last resort but seems to be required for any books that I got from Feedbooks.

I don't think there are any workarounds at the moment for books with DRM or PDF's. They show a standard BN book icon.
