Well i have alot of scores and achievements for my offline profile. How do i bring the whole profile online? If i create a new Online Profile, i will be starting everything from scratch.

Secondly i don't go online so often, so how can i update my achievement online?

Is the correct answer, my daughters gamertag was an offline profile, but we just connected to live and went through the steps to get a silver account.

When i first sign up for xbox live, i got a 1 month limited gold account. There is no silver account. And how do you bring the offline account to online now?
I do all this just to ensure that my gamertag is safe from getting deleted when my console and HDD encounter failure. In another words i am going to backup my gamertag.

Oh my god, you are making this whole thing WAAAAYYY more complicated than it is.

When you signed up with your limited gold account, did you make a new account, or "upgrade" your offline gamertag.

you need to "upgrade" your offline account to a limited gold account.

So now should i just delete my "just made online account" and sign up/upgrade again?

This is getting just crazy. You have 30 posts in two threads about you trying to get online and back up your account. If you haven't got the answers or help you need, I suggest you call xbox support.
