if you query the device it will show you the profiles supported by the
device - could be that you are seeing the profiles supported by the PC?
use bluetoothctl to be 100% sure.

I reworked the older kdebluetooth to use bluez5 and named it tdebluez, but
it is not included in official packages yet. Feedback will be appreciated
if you decide to compile and use it.

I don't understand this, but it might be also irrelevant. IF there is a mic
on the headset than it would support at least HSP - doesn't matter how old
it is. Here comes the question what HW version it has - but AFAIK they are
compatible to some extent.
For HFP you need a device with SIM card. Look at the screenshot with Nokia
5530 - it is without SIM card and reports only HSP. This is because HFP
provides access to phone book as well and is handled differently - but as I
said it is not relevant in the case.
