We have FBA on SP2010.

​This is for Activating My Sites - But I have understood that does not happen without user profile services. We have activated it in Site features but in central admin it has to be associated to a user mgmt application in Active Directory (AD). However, there is no option to associate it with FBA.

So, My question: Is it possible to create/install a user profile services which works with FBA?

Unfortunately you cannot OOB synchronize with a membership provider.

There are options, but no easy ones i am afraid.

One option is to extract an LDIF file and synchronize against itn (see info on TechNet here).

Another option is to manually add the users from your membership provider using the object model, and create a timer job that does the full/incremental sync. Here is a sample for working with the UserProfileManager.
