You can create user groups in Openfire.
As about extending user profile, can’t advise much. Not a developer myself. But you will probably need to extend a database schema and then edit user profiles jsp page and compile your own with more fields. Or you can create a plugin for that. And also you should keep in mind, that this custom changes wonlt be in the next Openfire versions, so you won’t be able to upgrade easily if you change database schema or admin console pages.
