I download a program from repository and install that. I know we need three partitions for Linux: (1) SWAP, (2) / (3), /home. Also I know /home is like a user profile and / is like a operating system profile.

So, we see the conclusion, if I install a program from repository this program belongs to me and not related to operating system. But you know the place of downloaded program is /usr/bin and etc But not in /home? /home is my profile. Please say where my conclusion is wrong?

The home directories are only for the user's personal data.

I assume you are familiar with Windows. Windows places programs in the Program Files directory (like /usr/bin) too, not in the Users directory (like /home) . This way all users can use the program. However, settings are usually per user and are stored in the user's home directory.

So we see the conclusion

Not, only you.

The Operative Systems is the one who runs the applications. You only install and use it, but it is "related" to the OS.
