I think so. Not sure what your question was, but you should be able
to do what you want.
Personally, I put these forms in the group footer, using conditionals
to trigger which form is displayed. For example, in
Profiles.GroupFooter I display their profile information, and if the
authid = the page name it adds an edit button. If they click the edit
button the page reloads displaying an edit form (in the same
GroupFooter). They save the changes and it reverts back to the view
mode. One page and the whole profiles group is viewable, editable,
Hope this helps.
