Manual adding Format
i dont know if my question is stupid, but maybe, it is not. I have added all my books to Calibre. Some of them are no ebook, they are real books. There are hardcover, paperback and others.
is it possible to assign formats like Hardcover, Paperback and so on to the books, so that i can use them in the library, or search only for Hardcover and so on? Would be fine, if someone cant point me in the right direction to get this to work.

No, you cannot add pseudo formats, although I guess you could add a dummy file with an appropriate file extension.
I use personally a tag (e.g. HARDCOVER, PAPERBACK, AUDIO) to indicate such books. As it easy to search and/or filter on tags this works well.

I created a custom column: "Extra Format" of type "comma separated text, like tags, shown in the tag browser". This way my tags won't be messed up and is still easy to search and/or filter on.
