Close, except Calibre itself doesn't remove DRM and DRM removal can be done outside Calibre or using a third party plugin that works from within Calibre.

Now, along with that, would I have to have them delivered initially to my computer, then transfer them to the ereader or could I have them delivered to the ereader, then transfer them to the computer to use Calibre, then transfer them to any device, I choose?
I find it easiest to download them to the computer and then transfer them after they've been uninfected.

Having removed the DRM, I would also be able to save them to an SD Card, Hard Drive, etc…. and keep them from now on, loading them onto any device I might have in the future?
Correct


Quote:
As far as the Adobe Digital Edition, how exactly does this come into play? Is that what then allows you to transfer it to different devices, after removing the DRM?
ADE is used to download books that use Adobe Adept DRM. These are usually ePubs from places like Kobo, Sony, Google, Diesel, Books on Board, etc, but can also be PDFs (they use the same DRM).
