If the problem is just this, the solution would be  

gen partnerprofit = profit[5] in 13 

In general, think about a -merge-.

Hello,

How can I write the value of the variable called profit for e.g., 
subject i as the value into another variable called "partnerprofit" of 
another subject j?

For example: I am subject 3, my partner is subject 5; his profit is 13, 
now I would like to stata write in my "partnerprofit" the value 13.

Thank you very much for your help!
Ozgur
