can I add tags to the book's filename?
I know I can do it when «saving to disk».
I just would like to have them into the library to.
As a matter of fact, I would prefer not to save to disk every book.
I would like to keep and sync the library with PDF Expert or iBooks into my iDevices, where then I could search for a particular tag (I prepend the hashtag symbol to every tag, so that searching is more accurate).
Is there a way to do that? I know you cannot change the dir structure of the library, but what about file names?

You can change the title of the book to whatever you want. But you have limited control over how calibre use the titles to set the filenames. Characters are replaced and the title may be truncated and an id added.
I would strongly recommend that you don't go there. But there is nothing to stop you from experimenting. Try to change the titles and try to figure out how the filenames change. I don't think it will work, but why not try it?

Just keep in mind that on a Windows based system you only have about 250 characters total for the full path and filename in order to access a file. If your Library is in the standard location, you have already used two dozen or more characters. The path these other programs use to manipulate files will also have to be considered.
