Problem with multiple shipping

I have different categories with different shipping price per unit.
For instance:
-books shipping cost 3.50€ per book
-bikes costs 9.90€ per bike
If someone buys 1 book + 1 bike he has to pay 3.50+9.90, if he buys 2 books + 1 bike he has to pay 3.50*2 + 9.90
In addition to that, I would like to have:
– with total < 150 € = apply rules above
– with total > 150€ = free shipping on everything

How can I combine those options?

Thank you for your help.
Thanks for your question. Since different categories have different shipping price, you need to create a shipping method for each category. For example, for the categories books and bines, you need total 3 shipping methods for achieving your goal.  First 2 methods for the categories and third one for the free shipping.
Finally, you want to sum up of different categories prices.  So first we will have to setup group mode option for summing up. Please go to Global Setting -> Group Option.  Now select Group1 is Sum 
Lets create the shipping methods now.
Method 1 (For Books):
  1.  Create a new method.
  2.  Under General Setting, Select Group is Group1
  3.  Under Category/Products Tab, Select Category Rule is “Any of the selected Categories with others”
  4. Now choose category Books
  5.  Under Price setting tab, Select Rate Type is “Quantity – Method Specific
  6.  Now enter Unit Ranges as follows

   Start    End       Cost        Per Unit Block       Allow Partial
0            999         3.5               1                                       NO

7. Under Other tab, enter Order Total Ranges 0 to 150

Method 2 (For bikes):

  1.  Create a new method.
  2.  Under General Setting, Select Group is Group1
  3.  Under Category/Products Tab, Select Category Rule is “Any of the selected Categories with others”
  4. Now choose category bikes
  5.  Under Price setting tab, Select Rate Type is “Quantity – Method Specific
  6.  Now enter Unit Ranges as follows

  Start    End       Cost        Per Unit Block       Allow Partial
0            999         9.9               1                                       NO

7. Under Other tab, enter Order Total Ranges 0 to 150

Method 3 (Free shipping):

  1.  Create a new method.
  2. Under Price setting tab, Select Rate Type is “Total
  3.  Now enter Unit Ranges as follows

 Start          End       Cost        Per Unit Block       Allow Partial
150        99999         0               1                                       NO

      – You need two shipping methods for that. One for paid items and another for free items. After that, you can turn both methods into a single method using group mode. Which means both method will act like a group. You can define the behaviour of that group (Sub, lowest, highest etc) in case of mixing items. Let me know if you need any help to configure
