Here's a couple of 'maybe' ideas
Maybe one way to do it would be to extract the opf from from the MOBI with the MobiUnpack plugin and then use the from-opf option of the ebook-meta command to update the Calibre metadata with what's in the opf file - see http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/cli/ebook-meta.html
. I think the MobiUnpack plug-in is a wrapper around a command line program, if you used the latter should make it simpler to write a script
Maybe another way would be to find something that would take the author & title from the file name and inject them into the relevant fields in the MOBI. You'd do this before you added the books to Calibre. Then set Calibre to get the author & title from inside the book - along with everything else - when it adds the book.
I assumed you'd get a simple answer by now - maybe this post will prompt such a thing
Addenda : I x-posted with DoctorOhh's post - he's given you a simple answer - but as he said - its one at a time.
