So...I accidentally made two profiles of the same person. I was distracted and thought I hadn't saved it. I did and it made a second. How do I delete Klaver-177 or merge it with Klaver-176?

You use the tag 'Netherlands'. Are these Dutch profiles? None have country information, nor clear links to Dutch sources. A great help is to add any country information you have. If you add location information it becomes easier to catch profiles that are already present and thus prevent duplicates. For the Boomsma-60 profile you created it might also be a duplicate of Boomsma-8.

I have always found this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5KzI-oIdZM very helpful in understanding the reason and concept of one profile per person.

I'm not sure that you can really delete a person but you could merge them. If your not sure how to merge search the help menu for how to merge.

That's right. Profiles aren't deleted. You can merge them, or just turn them into someone else with the same LNAB, like a sibling.
