I'm looking for  group of 500 photos with specific names and are NOT in a collection.

I've tested without success a sample of (5) names using the Text field  with a comma separating each name, and no space between names:

name 1,name 2,name 3,name 4,name 5

Finding filenames with the Text Attribute works that way ONLY if the files DO NOT have spaces as far as I can tell and you do not need the commas

To do the filter you want you can use BOTH a Smart Collection and the Filter Bar Text Attribute at the same time.  Have the Smart Collection selected.    Change a e i o u to what ever you need to make sure all the collections are addressed.

BTW, you can do the same in a single smart collection but it would require changing the smart collection every time for different filenames.
