From the dashboard -> settings -> users, you can allow users to register with your site.

If you do a search on "profile" on the gallery, you will find the Profile module, which enables registered users to update their profile. You can configure this profile by attaching content fields to the ProfilePart.  I've heard good reviews about this module, and as I happen to know the author I can highly recommend it.

If there is, I don't know of it. However, it should be trivial to try out your self by following these steps:

  1. Install the Profile module
  2. Go to Content -> Content Types and edit the User content type
  3. Add the Profile part to the User content type
  4. Go to Content -> Content Parts and edit the Profile part.
  5. Add one or more content fields to the Profile part

Logout from the dashboard (make sure that you configured the site to allow for user registration) and create a new account.

Once your new account has been validated and approved, login and navigate to: http://localhost:30320/OrchardLocal/Profile/Edit/your-new-username to edit your new profile.

Correction: the url should be: http://localhost:30320/OrchardLocal/Profile/Edit
