I set up a port channel with success and am trying to setup LACP and assign a switching profile to it for trunking but can't seem to figure it out. Is LACP nessisary and what is the benefit to that over regular port channel?

Using LACP over static port-channels is definitely recommended. Static port channels can be dangerous if one side is not configured correctly. LACP uses negotation to bring up the port-channel.
1) Create an LACP profile
interface-profile lacp-profile "LACP-PROFILE-1" group-id 0 mode active
timeout short !
2) Create a port-channel interface that matches the LACP group-id number.
interface port-channel "0" ip access-group in "INBOUND-ACL-B" qos trust auto description "CORE1-PC" switching-profile "VLAN100-PROFILE-B" enet-link-profile pc_default !
3) Assign the LACP profile to port(s)
interface gigabitethernet "7/1/0" lacp-profile "LACP-PROFILE-1" description "Uplink to Core" !
