Calibre Companion android app will show books as seen in the attached images. I prefer to open books in Moonreader+ via Calibre Companion. But if you must see a book shelf just import the books into Moonreader (IMHO a waste of space and time) and you will see shelves like the second 2 images attached.

Moonreader+ handles all the formats you mentioned and more.

I you want this is doable within calibre but it is always better to convert before you try to transfer any books. This way you can review the outcome and verify it is to your liking.
