No, DB2 uses OS authentication, You will need to created a OS user and grant appropriate privileges to access the db.

#2.I want to set up the db2 udb  environment for an operating system user.I believe,we need to update .profile file in Unix for that user.My doubts are

For the user to be able to use db2 add these lines to the .profile file

# The following three lines have been added by UDB DB2.
if [ -f sqllib/db2profile ]; then
    . /<path to sqllib>/sqllib/db2profile
fi


a).How to set db2 path and other variables in .profile file?

Adding the above lines in .profile will enable you to use all the db2 commands, for specify commands add them like bellow inside the above if loop

 PATH=${PATH}:/opt/IBM/hpu/V2.1/bin
    export PATH

b).What are all the options that we need to consider in setting up the DB2 environment for an operating system user.

setting up the profile file will enable the user to use db2 commands, use appropriate grant commands to restrict the access, if you have a bunch of users create a OS group add all the users to the group and use grant commands against the group.
