To edit your profile go to the main top menu item which is your name and select User Control Panel (not Profile); then on the Profile tab select Avatar and upload an image. It will be displayed as 125x125 px, and there's a size limit which I can't remember - maybe 30kB or somesuch, but don't quote me on that.

To put images in posts, you provide a url and put "img" tags round it (from the editor menu). If it's your own picture, you need to put it on an image hosting site; quite a lot of people use imgur, but if you already have an account elsewhere that should be fine - just so long as they allow hot-linking. It is preferable to use https links rather than http if possible.

The "How-to" link in the main menu above is the phpBB help, which explains all this.
