Hi Fernando:

The dev list here isn't really the right place to be asking all of
these questions. Install profiles are quite new, there is
http://groups.drupal.org/distributions where a lot of this is being
discussed -- please come join us there.

I have *some* of the functions you mention in my install_profile_api
module / crud.inc, which is referenced in that group.

Short answer regarding the forms is that there has been much talk of
"wizard" functionality, but I don't know if there is a clear plan on
how to do that.

You can look at some of the language-specific install profiles to see
about setting language.
