Since you are using the beta camera profiles, the first thing I would suggest would be to download the final profiles that have been released. If you were to upgrade to Lightroom 2.2 the profiles would be installed automatically.
If you still find it necessary you could use the Profile Editor to create a modified profile that produces the results you are looking for.
Is it possible to remove the beta profiles once I have installed the finals?
Yes, you just need to locate the folders and delete them. Try searching your user profile for "beta" or CameraRaw to find the location.
The Adobe-provided profiles are not intended to match the in-camera JPEG directly. They are intended to match what you would get if you developed the raw file through NX with very specific settings (basically, defaults, with extras like d-lighting turned off). I'm guessing you have one or more extras (e.g., d-lighting) enabled in the camera, this is affecting the in-camera jpeg, and this is why you don't see a match.
I'm using Windows XP. On my computer the path to the profiles is:
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles"
If you go to that location you will find a folder designated as beta, among other things. All you have to do is delete that folder, and your beta profiles will be gone. Since that is quite a long path to navigate to, I have created a shortcut to the folder in a place where I can find it quickly.
