Far as I know there is no way to access the books within the sqlite database (I think pholy is right and it is encrypted). I can look at some of the data from the book (e.g whether it has been read) but can't access the individual books.
You certainly can download the epubs using ADE. I normally don't from the kobo site for two reasons - no book I have downloaded that way ever has a cover with it and sometimes the margins are too large making the book hard to read. I always get a cover and proper margins using the kobo desktop reader to download my kobo purchases.
