... so I have to "remove" one printer via "Manage printers" and "activate" the other one and vice versa?
You dont have to "remove" anything.. you just have to select the active printer you want to use..
But you cant have 2 temporary profiles active at once, you need to save one.

That is not true. Each printer "instance'" in Cura can have its own set of temporary ("user") setting values, you don't have to save them before switching.
Edit: hmm, I must admit that I am not sure how this works with multiple "networked" UM printers. I have only one. What I said is true for non-networked printers.Edited by ahoeben
I think @HoAlb is talking about the imported 3D-models (stl files) on the buildplate. Those are not part of printer bounded settings AFAIK. The content (and placement) on the build plate is independent of the selected printer and not "automagically" saved in any way, right?
One can use project files for this purpose, but that's a manual save, not an automated process. (menu: "File -> Save Project...")
You can only have one printer active at a time when working in cura.
