There would be no conflict if the terminology were used by more than just
*one* controversy-loving "guru" -- and just about no one else of renown in
the imaging industry.
All others prefer to talk about *assigning* a profile instead. And there is
nothing "false" about that.
By the way, changing *gamma* is not exactly tantamount to changing profiles.

Why would you *convert*? For the results that you are after, you should just
*assign* another profile.
If you convert, the appearance remains the same. Which defeats your purpose,
which is to change the file's *appearance*, correct?

What exactly do you mean "in color settings"? I don't follow you. Please

And exactly *how* is it that you go about doing that?

The description of the steps in your procedure is very insufficient. I for
one have no idea what exactly it is that you are doing, and how -- though I
could try to guess, but I would rather have you tell us. Until that is
clear, it will remain hard to offer suggestions.
