On your last question, proper installation through -net- or -ssc- (which is just an elaborate wrapper for -net-) takes care of that.  Conversely, I don't think there is anything you could put in a profile.do that will stop you putting files in dopey places if you are so minded (except -exit, STATA-). 

I include this in my profile.do (local details suppressed) 

set httpproxy on
set httpproxyhost <whatever> 
set httpproxyport 8080 

and that's essential when it's essential. See help on -netio-. 

There's software for which there's a deep art, or some kind of chutzpah, in building up a long personalised initialisation file full of clever tricks, but I am not sure that Stata is included under that heading.

I just reinstalled Stata and I would like to keep my installation
directory clean.  What are some good tips for making efficient use of
profile.do?

So far, I have included the following commands:

set mem 500m
set matsize 5000
cd C:\Users\amedwick\Documents\Stata

Is there a way to keep updates from STB, SJ, SSC in their own folders?
 Anything else should I include?
