The portable browser is not designed for multiple profiles.
HOWEVER: you can simply create a copy of the portable browser in a different folder, and it will have its own profile.

The best way to update is to download a new version of the portable and copy the backups and user (and maybe downloads too if you want to carry them over) subfolders across to the new installation. (and if needed, the Lib/Mozilla/Plugins folder if you have a local plugin)
