The tags are not actually written to the PDF file itself. They are stored in a separate file on the Sony. I think it is media.xml.

Yes, a PDF editing tool to modify the metadata in the file is your best bet.

Or have calibre convert the PDF to ePub instead. This is a format that calibre can write metadata too.
