I'm also trying to figure this out - I've been financially independent from my parents for nearly a decade, but the CSS profile doesn't seem to even allow that someone might be living apart from them.
I called the fin aid office last before the holiday to try to figure out the best way to handle it - they said fill out the info to the best of my knowledge and just explain in the special circumstances. Given the amount of specificity around the parental income questions and the fact that my parents have point blank both refused to provide any aid or info, I'm not sure I'll even be able to fill this out.
