If you import the KPF file into calibre as a new book entry it will populate the Title and Author columns with whatever data it extracts from the file. You can change those and other metadata in the calibre book entry before conversion to MOBI to set whatever metadata you like in the MOBI file.

If you change any metadata in calibre after conversion you can update the metadata in the MOBI file by using the Embed Metadata or Polish Book commands in calibre.
