The system I am working on at home is back on good old Gnome 1.4, but
man gnome-terminal says:

The GNOME terminal allows you to have different configuration profiles
to suit different uses (different background colours, presence,
absence or position of scrollbars, and so on).  To set these up, you
invoke the preferences dialogue box from the settings menu of
gnome-terminal. Select the options you prefer (these changes will be
made to your currently-open terminal, so you can see what they look
like), and before closing the preferences box, make sure you have
put a new name in the space marked "Terminal Class".

To activate a specific class at program startup you can use the
--tclass command line option
