I stopped using separate profiles for FileManagement & WebBrowsing
because I found it a pain, so I don't really have experience with it.
Have you tried:
kfmclient newTab <URL> "text/html"
There is also a command: "kstart" that allows you to specify other
parameters such as the DeskTop number. I don't know if that would help
I suspect that you are going to need a script and some DCOP to make this
