    Since Calendars, is a part of iCloud, maybe there is a plist file for iCloud Sync settings that can be removed/recreated?

    When I went looking in my user Library, I noticed there were iCal plist flies, not Calendar plist files?

    Yes, confusion as per, Bob.

    I've found:
    com.apple.CalendarAgent
    com.apple.ical.helper.plist
    com.apple.iCal.plist
    com.apple.cloudd.plist

    There's even Apple confusion as to what to call the darned thing, i.e. Calendar (sometimes), and iCal (othertimes)...

    If/when I do try the deleting, I'll start with the simple 'com.apple.ical.plist'.

    I've found:

    Don't forget that you can usually open the .plist files by using Drag&Drop onto TextEdit.app or similar text editor to open them, and get a rough idea as to what data each one might contain or settings.

    EDIT:
    BTW: Here's an article that may be a solution to your original problem:
    Merging two calendars in macOS Sierra
    Merging two calendars in macOS Sierra - Ask Different

    I'm sure a Google search will have more answers if you need them.

    No reason to create more work that may not even work.

    The reason for the different names is that the name of the program has changed over the years. Originally introduced as called iCal, the program is now called Calendar.

    Just don't try to edit a .plist file with TextEdit or any other plain jane text editor. Because it doesn't work and royally screws up the .plist file. Always use a .plist editor.

    A short cut if all you want to do is see what's in a plist is to click once on it to select it, then tap the spacebar. That brings up QuickView (I think that's the term) where any displayable file opens in a window. Tap Spacebar again to make the quick view go away.
