Question Managing multiple series in custom data fields

I have many anthologies in my library containing books from different series and authors. I add the names of all authors in the book to the author field and can sort, search, etc. without problems. I cannot do this in the series field, so I created additional series fields in custom data. My question is, is there any way to add all series from the original field to the custom fields so they are available in the drop down menu and link them so the series will increase incrementally in both fields?

EPUBSPLIT plugin is the only (reasonable) way if more than 2.
Break them appart and mark each as needed

I have a second series-like custom column, I use for when a series crosses with another (eg Joanna Brady and J. P. Beaumont)
