The CalMAN user is talking for two specific ArgyllCMS format files ('CCMX' or 'CCSS') he has found but you reply what to do with in theory with different file format 'EDR'.

You have found 2 corrections files for the Samsung Q9, but its for HCFR/DisplayCAL/ArgyllCMS,...but you want to use them for CalMAN.....OK, no problem.
But when you are using CCSS correction, you assume that the internal spectral data of X-Rite meter from the factory hasn't drifted, since the internal meter spectra + CCSS spectra data are combined to create a correction matrix.

Using other people CCMX file will not work, only if you have your own meters combo (colorimeter+spectro) you can create matrix based correction (CCMX = Colorimeter Correction Matrix) which will be only valid for your current meters/display.
For that reason it will not work (I mean it will not be correct method) if you manually enter other people 3x3 CCMS matrix data inside your CalMAN meter profile 3x3 matrix area.
If you have your own spectro, you can create a 3x3 matrix from HCFR using i1Display PRO and then import it manually to CalMAN for your i1Display PRO.
But since you have found a CCSS file for the i1Display PRO, you can use i1Display PRO with that specific CCSS file loaded and you will measure 4 WRGB patches from inside HCFR, note to a text time the 4 xyY readings (these numbers will be used as reference meter readings later.)
Then you take the same measurements from inside CalMAN with 'RAW XYZ' mode selected, so you will have 4 xyY readings, note them also.
Now with these 8 xyY numbers you have collected, you will use the Four Color Matrix Utility of CalMAN to convert these reading to a 3x3 Four Color Matrix, which later you will import manually to your CalMAN. (see to your CalMAN folders in Start Menu)
Using Right Mouse Click and Paste... (note to transfer to the correct numbers of coordinates/luminance per each color to each tab)
Paste the HCFR to Reference Meter Data and the CalMAN to the Target Meter Data.
When you will finish, the Four Color Matrix Tool will generate a 3x3 XYZ matrix:
The last step is to copy paste the matrix inside your CalMAN.
You have to open the meter settings, at the bottom click to create a new profile 'Add Profile'...I have renamed it as 'External Profile to that picture.
For your colorimeter, since you are using i1Display PRO, select RAW XYZ table, from the display type list.
Then using Right Click, copy-paste the 9 numbers to each number tab.
Then you can continue using your CalMAN but with correct meter profiling loaded.
Note that you have to use the exact same patterns per each software measurements, because you don't want any difference of patch generation settings (levels) or window size to affect your results, you can use some external patterns which will be the same for these 4+4 readings. (+4 for verification)
At the end of all the procure, measure again the 4 WRGB patches from CalMAN to see if your readings are close to the HCFR readings (reference meter), procedure called as meter profile verification.
