1) Create a textfile for each series listing the order of the books
2) Create sub-collections for each book number - this can even be automated if using the "create collections from filestructure" feature. Calibre can save each book into its own subfolder in a series - this time not through plugboards, but the send to device option.
1) and 2) not really what you want, so I thought up something else:
3) mess with the author tag in plugboards instead of title - as in adding the booknumber in front, then the normal authors, and then select sort by author - the title would be nice, if you can live with weird authors ...
edit: or adding the # after the author - as it should be the same author for a series - this way sorting by authors still would sort correctly
