Yes.  Although note that it depends on what they contain: package One
from profile A can be exclusive with package Two from profile B.

Therefore, combining profile A and B to create on the fly a new profile
containing both the packages One and Two can lead to issues if packages
One and Two are incompatible; aside potential issues with incompatible

Does it make sense?

other profile living in ~/.config/guix/profiles/; one for Emacs, one for
compilers, one for TeX, one for various applications, etc.

For switching, as said earlier in this thread, there is various options.
