I am not sure if the is the correct place to post this, however, I am trying to get a flat rate shipping rate to be calculated differently based on the product.

My thinking was to create a custom field called "flat rate price" where I enter in the products shipping cost for example "250" would be the flat rate shipping.

I cannot figure out how in the world to get that 250 data into rules for the flat rate shipping calculation.

That's one possibility, but what do you do if there are multiple products in the order? And what if they have competing rates? If you create a flat rate that has a base rate of $0, you could use a system similar to what I describe in #1598096-5: How to define a flat rate service that gets incremented per product (i.e. $10 + $4 per product) to loop over the line items on the order and then tweak the conditions a bit to get at the product information from the line item.
