Changing input fields
I am a new user of Calibre so if this problem has been solved elsewhere please point me in the write direction.
My ebook data is structured as follows:
author - ebook title
As you can see this results in the author inputted as title and the title as the author. Is there a way to get the program to read the files names in reverse order

Yes. You go to Preferences | Add/Save | Adding books.
Activate "Read metadata only from file name" and change the "Regular expression" that specifies exactly how to interpret the different parts of the filename.
(?P<author>[^_]+) - (?P<title>.+)
If you test this, make sure to enter the whole filename as test string, including the file extension. (.lit/.epub etc)
You can also read the filenames as they are, and later swap author/title when you edit metadata for a book. There is a button for that purpose.
