David, you cannot get VOA at Shanghai airport because it is only issued to those who enter PRC under emergency circumstances. You should apply for a tourist L type ahead of your journey, while it is not preferable.
If you can make a transfer in HK/Macau before you arrive in Shanghai, or after you leave Shanghai, you can enjoy the free transit in Shanghai. I mean you fly like this: Abu Dhabi-HK/Macau-Shanghai- Abu Dhabi, or Abu Dhabi-Shanghai-HK/Macau- Abu Dhabi. In this case, the 72 hour free transit will be applicable to your travel. No entry permit will be required.
