If you want your other settings, do the same with the configuration folder ( use the button in Preferences: Miscellaneous to locate both) Note: you may have to use 'Create/Switch' to point at the new Library location on starting
Can somebody break this down into easier instructions for me please?

When you say 'copy that ENTIRE contents of--old library folder into the new folder.' Do you mean all the books in my original Calibre library? If so how do you do this?

Or do you mean a separate folder that will be on my old computer that needs to be put in a new folder that will be formed when you install Calibre on the new computer?

Perhaps somebody can break this all down into step-by-step instructions so that I do not get it wrong.
