RE: Profile Document

The first thing you should do is forget about using profile documents. Aside from being inappropriate for your current requirement, they are generally not something that newbies should try to manipulate until they've mastered a few more basic Notes concepts.

I don't understand the "DB should be empty" requirement. It sounds like you're creating a simple database with a single form. That's easy enough, so then allow people to "compose" *regular* Notes documents based on that form, and be sure it has fields (computed when composed in this case) that store the original submitter's name, and another for the submit date. The computed when composed field type ensures that those values don't recompute when the document is edited later by someone else.

After the original submitter saves the document for the first time, presumably you have included information on the document about who should receive a doclink to this document in a mail message. You can send the message to them at this time.

The recipients of the doclink will need to have access to the database in order to click on the link, but it sounds like you've got that covered. Being that you are not using profile documents anymore, the link should work fine.

That should get you pointed in the right direction at least.
