Profiles here means a group of plugins that you want to install. In this you have to basically raise the plugin link to the official repository of WordPress, which will be something like this:

For example, you can see, this plugin has a default profile, in which plugins names are written according to the URLs of some plugins in the official repository of WordPress:
You can create a list according to the names of your favorite plugins, and then save it as a new profile. All you have to do is click on the Save Profile button by entering names of all the plugins. To install plugins together either select your already existing profile or add the URLs based names of all plugins and then click on the Download plugins and save profile button.
