And, will the art that I was able to get for the books also carry over to the Kindle? <--not necessary, just asking. That part (getting the cover art and the tags) was really easy and intuitive.

I'm curious if the books will now fit in, alpha, by last name. I'm keeping them in FN, LN format, because I like it that way.
first, in calibre you need to check the box labled 'use author sort for author'. this box is located in preferences->input/export->Output Options->MOBI Output. this will make the mobi file you send to the kindle sort in last name, first name order by the kindle.

to send your books to the kindle you can do so by following emalvick's instructions on how to do it over the usb connection.

to make a cover you added with calibre part of the file that goes to the kindle you must convert it after adding the new cover, even if that conversion is just a mobi to mobi conversion.
