Do you mean it like this?

echo '<a href="profile.php?id=' . $res['MemberID']. '">' . $res['UserName'] . '</a><br>';

You can retreive that with $_GET['id'],
but these are really the basics. Perhaps you should read some PHP tutorials first.

If you have that in your addressbar just get it with
<?php
 $userid = $_GET[id];
 echo"$userid";
 // for further data use query
 $query = "SELECT * FROM members WHERE Memberid = $userid";
 $result = mysql_query($query);
 $row = mysql_fetch_array($result);
 echo"$row[UserName]";
?>
