Custom columns question

At the moment I have two main tags like columns (tags and shelves from goodreads). I created another column - genres. I populate it with syncing with goodreads sync plug in.

What I want is to populate it from other columns too. Is it possible?

I probably wouldn't be able to sync to custom column made from other columns or could I?


Actually I just thought of a way. Don't know if it would work. I could sync to shelves column. And I could create a custom column for genres which would be from tags and shelves.

Now the problem.
The problem is that I want it to take only specific values like - historical, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary and not take other tags like short etc. I want to extract only genres. Is it possible to make it add only those values which are determined before.
Would it be possible to add new values later?

I want to group all my tags - book length, genres, character etc. into columns. So instead of 150 tags I would have organized structure.

Basically forget the syncing part. Just how to make a custom column from two columns which would extract only specific values?

I'd appreciate any help. Hope it is possible.
