Hello !I've bought today a Xrite Color Checker Passport,i wanted to create my own custom profiles using the Xrite ''ColorChecker Camera Calibration Software''.

I made 1 Daylight profile and 1 Daylight Shade profile,they work fantastic !

Now the question is...should i make 1 night and 1 blue hour profile to cover almost every scenario ?I am talking mainly for landscape photography...i know that i have to create also Tungsten,Fluorescent light...but mainly i take pictures of nature,so Sunrise,Sunset,Daylight,Blue hour and Night.

No,

There is no need.

Lightroom uses two color matrices. One for daylight (D50) and one for incandescent (Illuminant A). After that it uses the correlated color temperature to interpolate between the color matrices.

It may make sense to generate an extra color profile for illuminants that are non continuous, like fluorescent  tubes.

Doing proper color profiles may be tricky.

Best regards

Erik
