Loading 5000 Technical Papers in PDF format Advice

I need some advice on how to load my technical directory into Calibre. I have over 5000 technical papers in PDF format. The files are all named by the paper number, for example, SPE000123456. Calibre loads all the files and extracts the paper title and the authors from the meta data and creates the Calibre library.

The problems I am trying to resolve are:

Calibre no longer keeps the original file name which contains the the paper number, which is a major reference that I need to find papers etc. So how can I incorporate the paper number when I load the files into Calibre.

Calibre generates the authors from the meta data but it contains non author information, for example:

Y. Cheng, SPE, West Virginia University
K.H. Coats, Coats Engineering; C.H. Whit - authors truncated

So how can I clean this up or import the files in a "clean" state.

Any advice would be appreciated.
