So, I first followed Scott Hanselman's instructions for getting SSh set up with a public key so that I wouldn't have to enter my username and password every time I opened up my SSH terminal. You can find those here:

After that, I created a new profile in Terminal by copying and pasting the PowerShell profile. You need to create a new guid value (there are free generators online) or else it will just open up the first profile it finds. Then, set the commandline parameter like this:

"commandline" : "ssh.exe @"

That's all there is to it.
