What are Lightroom profiles and how are they different from the sliders?
Couldn't I, for example, replicate Adobe color from Adobe standard just by dragging the saturation slider a bit to the right?

A profile is basically a canned set of settings to apply to an image.
When you talk about Adobe color, you are talking about color space. Color space defines the allowable gamut of colors to be used in an image. Thus, you can't create a color space with the sliders in LR. Most images use sRGB color space which is a medium to low gamut color space. For commercial and exacting work you would want to use a wide gamut like ProPhoto. Be warned that many image viewers can only handle sRGB color space. If you were to view a ProPhoto color space on an image viewer that can only handle sRGB, the picture will look drab, very drab.

Yes, you could create your own profile yourself.
