is there also a possibility to enable all my profiles when I log in
to my MATE desktop?

So that all applications (including terminal emulators, regardless of
their configuration) open with them already enabled? There's no such
possibility I know of :/

There is a way and I think it may even be standardized.
On my non-guix distro I use sddm as display-manager. On login, it executes /usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsession as my user.

It contains:
  9 case $SHELL in
 10   */bash)
 11     [ -z "$BASH" ] && exec $SHELL $0 "$@"
 12     set +o posix
 13     [ -f /etc/profile ] && . /etc/profile
 14     if [ -f $HOME/.bash_profile ]; then
 15       . $HOME/.bash_profile
 16     elif [ -f $HOME/.bash_login ]; then
 17       . $HOME/.bash_login
 18     elif [ -f $HOME/.profile ]; then
 19       . $HOME/.profile
 20     fi
 41   */fish)
 42     xsess_tmp=`mktemp /tmp/xsess-env-XXXXXX`
 43     $SHELL --login -c "/bin/sh -c 'export -p' > $xsess_tmp"
 44     . $xsess_tmp
 45     rm -f $xsess_tmp
 46     ;;
 47   *) # Plain sh, ksh, and anything we do not know.
 48     [ -f /etc/profile ] && . /etc/profile
 49     [ -f $HOME/.profile ] && . $HOME/.profile

So it does try to find shell specific config files (for those that it knows about).

You need to know what display-manager (the program where you log in to your user) you use and look at its documentation to see what files it may source before it logs you in.

In that case, you don't need to launch bash as login shell in your terminal, because all the profiles are activated when you login.
