Doesn't this imply you have a metadata server on your pc? If you don't, not sure that this is possible, unless your PC has a registered workspace server on it
The parameters would depend on your installation.... But thought the profile setup wizard was pretty self explanatory.

Typically when everything is on the same machine these are the values I use for 9.2; the port may be different for 9.1:
port: (enter a port number or use the default port 8561)
userid: your local userid; needs to be valid for the host your metadata server is on
password: your local password; needs to be valid for the host your metadata server is on
Authentication domain: leave it blank or DefaultAuth

You need to install the SAS Metadata Server on your local machine using the SAS Setup utility (setup.exe in SAS depot). On a single machine it's quite straight forward and the installation wizard will guide you.
You need access to a SAS depot, an Order and (I believe) a Plan (one of the standard deployment plans should do). The metadata server is part of Foundation SAS so eventually you can even install without a plan using the "express" installation without a plan (a selection in the installation wizard).
You also need access to a license file which allows you to run such a server on your machine.
How this works and what's required can all be found here: Install Center

Data Integration (DI) on a personaI machine? Yes it is possible to install it, with the requirements:
- the needed license. The whole process of installing the eip/baf platform.
- with all needed system-admin rights on that machine. It is needing some preparation in the user-access management and more. In managed environments this will normally closed.
- Doing all kind of configurations afterwards in the metadata
This is not the simple click on setup.and .. run approach as many expected it.
With Eminer there is a desktopversion having all docuements to dot this. It is very special area of usage.
DI is normally used to build the ETL process and part of a whole IT infrastructure and business processes having a lot of additional requirements and already prepared information (data/metadata).
So I do not understand the reason for the question.
Is it working for the office at an other location?
A remote desktop connection approach is a better approach as you get all needed to continue your work.
Is it learning the DI tooling?
That is a difficult one,
SAS is not offering that is an "on demand service".
I do not know of any other provider/service offering this as an "SAAS"/cloud approach.
