I have been following this documentation to see how I can assign a Task record type I created for a profile I have. However, the instructions say "Select a profile. The record types available for that profile are listed in the Record Type Settings section", but I cannot find the "Record Type Settings section". The closest thing there is is:

Object Settings

Permissions to access objects and fields, and settings that specify which record types, page layouts, and tabs are visible

But even in there I cannot find the record type I need.

You have to pick an object to assign record types for. So, Setup > Profiles > Profile Name > Object Settings > Object Name > Edit. Note that this is only true if you have the Enhanced Profile Editor. The notes you're looking at are written for the "classic" editor, which presented all options on a single page.
