Does this sound right? I delete the 'series' part from the Kobo driver shelves bit in preferences, leaving just 'myshelves.' Then all I need to do is set the 'myshelves' column in Calibre to whatever shelf I want that books to go into and let Calibre work its magic.
I only have "myshelves" specified as well as create shelves selected to it's right. I then manually set the shelf name I wanted to use. You can select all of the books in a series and change / assign a shelf name one time, doing all of them at once (select all the books and then select "edit metadata"). It automatically opens to the custom metadata page. Type in the shelf name and hit apply.
