Yeah it takes that long because it has to extract the metadata from each book which in some cases means redering html web pages or converting large images into different formats, etc.

As for switching title and author, there isn't an option to do it in bulk. In the advanced section of the config dialog however, you can swap the order in which title and author are detected from the filename (you will have to re-import after doing this).
