There's not edit option because the privacy level isn't set to Open.  You should first request to be added to the profile's trusted list.  The profile manager hasn't been active in a year, so he may or may not respond.  If he doesn't, you can follow the steps to file an Unresponsive Manager request and have the privacy opened up so you can edit.

You don't.  Not unless you get added to the trusted list, become the profile manager or somebody changes the privacy level to open

You can send a request to the manager to be on the trusted list.  Include a brief explanation. 

Or you can leave the source info in the comment section of the profile.
