No. It's not the Portable version.
Go here for that version, > http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

2 Installations = ?
More info required.
Maybe this? > http://kb.mozillazine.org/Opening_a_new ... er_profile

What is your definition of "portable"?

What are the intended uses of your different "installs"?

definition of portable is to be able to move the folder to other places in my laptop and it will still work

purpose of different installs is to view settings and copy them to the other installation

(For the most part) your Profile folder can be anywhere you want it (& also named as you wish).
All you need to do is to tell SeaMonkey where it is - in some fashion or another.

Can be done by pointing to the wanted location in Profile Manager or by using the -profile command line switch.
