I do not quite get your scenario. So first you provide your own
metamodel - understood. Now you want to define a profile for these
metaclasses? Wouldn't it be a lot easier to define this metamodel
according to your needs from the beginning?
In general, do you not use the UML2 metamodel at all, or is there
another reason why you cannot simply stick to profiles?

Not in a profile. Stereotypes are the way to go here.
You can of course define your own metamodel library and reference UML
metaclasses therein - but in contrast to profiles, tool-support will be
quite close to non-existent when it comes to instantiate this metamodel.
UML tools are just not meant to be used completely without UML :)

What do you mean by "apply a metamodel construct"? Examples?
