As I see from this page:

STAT_PROFIT_FACTOR:

Profit factor, equal to  the ratio of STAT_GROSS_PROFIT/STAT_GROSS_LOSS. If STAT_GROSS_LOSS=0, the profit factor is equal to DBL_MAX

I do not know about signals - may be same ...

if you make 2 trades, one you win 3 $ and the next one you win 1$, the profit factor is (3+1) : 2 = 2

This is not correct.

In your example profit factor can not be calculated because Gross Loss value is equal to 0.

As stated above, PF is Gross Profit/ Gross Loss. So, if you make 3 trades with the following results: +5$, -5$, +10$. PF will be = 15/5=3.0;

Because Gross Profit is the summ of all PROFIT trades and gross loss is the summ of all LOSS trades.
