Adopted family tree vs birth family tree and correct DNA test connection

I originally put my adopted family tree on Wiki Tree and matched my DNA to myself in that tree. Then I uploaded my birth family tree. My question is

1. How do I make my birth tree my tree on Wiki Tree instead of my adopted family tree?  

2. More importantly, how to I connect my DNA testing to myself on my birth family tree?

Such  a mess I have made!

You only have one profile I'm assuming. You should disconnect (not delete) your adopted parents from yourself and add your biological parents. Then your DNA will flow through directly.

Link to your adopted parents in your biography.

There's an option to mark your parents as non-biological but this doesn't allow you to add another father and mother. At least I don't think it does.

Thank you. Should I merge Theresea Davis with Sally Ann Lewis? Both of these people are me and the DNA test was connected to Sally Ann Lewis my adoptive name. So I deleted the teat and will replce it when I am sure Theresa Davis is designated as me on Wiki Tree.
Yes, you should only have one profile so merging yourself with yourself is a good idea. Your last name at birth is the profile that will remain and to that you will attach your DNA. There is a field for other last names as well as the one for current last name. Current last name is the name you now are using while other last names are other names you have been known by which will include your adopted family's last name.
Here's a template you can use in your bio about your adopted parents.
