No.

IF that is the case.....i am going to assume that there is a method for me to use to get my own ebooks on this device yet I still have not figured it out and what seems to be clear to all of you is not yet clear to me
Once your Kobo is set up properly and your books are in the right format, you can either just drag and drop them straight onto the device, or you can put them on there with Calibre. You don't need to read every single thing about Calibre first if you're just doing a default move-to-device action. Just make sure your version of Calibre is up to date, use its setup wizard defaults and you're good to go.

If you're still having problems with Calibre itself, you might want to post in that forum. Be prepared to give exact examples of what books are causing you trouble, their source, and the precise steps you've taken so far.
