In that case, you'd just modify the path to point
to your profile's bin. Another way would be to
source the <your-profile>/etc/profile which
basically set's all these paths for you.

See above.

Wrt QT, I'm not exactly sure how to help with
that. I barely use applications that use QT(most
of the things I run use GTK). I can see that GTK
is somewhat set:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8--
➜  ~ less ~/.guix-profile/etc/profile | grep GTK

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The variables defined in the
<my-profile>/etc/profile set the correct paths wrt
your actual profile...

I'm not sure if I was helpful... perhaps someone
else who uses QT applications could chime in and
provide some hints.
