To enter, you just need to ’source path/to/some-profile/etc/profile’.

However, you cannot “deactivacte“; unset the environment variables and
restore the previous ones.  Maybe, the easiest is:

   source path/to/some-profile/etc/profile
   …do some stuff…

Instead, you can run

    guix shell -p path/to/some-profile/etc/profile
    …do some stuff…

which does the same thing as above.

What do you mean by “choose”?

It is missing the option -i (or -m).  For instance,

    guix package -i musescore -p projects/musescore-3.6.2.guix-profile
