So do I need to create a file in my user directory called .profile or profile to put the configurations I want into? There is still a lot I don't understand about this stuff yet.

You could put "source .bashrc" in your account's ".profile".  Better., I 
think, is to put those commands you want executed at login by the user in 
question directly into her/his ".profile".  A user's ".bashrc" is for 
shells launched after login, e. g. by "screen".
