Why do you want to execute it within a Terminal window rather than just executing the system_profiler task itself?

The first problem is that the command is wrong. You've misspelled part of it.

You gave this:
system_profiler -xml SPApplicationDataType

It should be this:
system_profiler -xml SPApplicationsDataType
The word Applications must end with an "s".

Manually enter this command in Terminal:
system_profiler -listDataTypes
then copy and paste the listed data type you want.
