No. Once you have imported the EHM 2007 database to the new EHM 2015 format, you can copy the newly created "database.db" and any extra configuration files (see: Extra Files below) into a separate folder and point the local path there.

Local path: {game installation folder}\data\database\

This is the folder where the select path dialog starts. Choose your imported database folder (or create it) and put the database.db file into there.

Required files for uploaded databases: database.db
Possible extra files: extra_config.cfg, record_config.cfg, transfer_rules_config.cfg

The filenames should follow the full name as it appears in the game, regardless of .png or .jpg:

How should my Logo Pack be structured?
The folders should be structured like this for North American clubs (USA/Canada):

clubs\small\<league name>\
clubs\medium\<league name>\
clubs\large\<league name>\
clubs\huge\<league name>\
clubs\background\<league name>\

Example: clubs\small\National League\
All USA National League team logos would go into here (for a default database logo pack)

The folders should be structured like this for all other clubs:

clubs\small\<nation>\
clubs\medium\<nation>\
clubs\large\<nation>\
clubs\huge\<nation>\
clubs\background\<nation>\

Example: clubs\small\Great Britain\
All Great Britain team logos would go into here (for a default database logo pack)

Within this league/nation specific folder, you need to add the club logo images (.png or .jpg) so that they are named as the club full name appears in the game.

For competitions, the folders should be structured like this:

comps\small\
comps\medium\
comps\large\
comps\huge\
comps\background\

What about actually editing the files etc to create custom leagues and stuff? That's what I'd like to do.
