Mac or Windows?
Can you show a screenshot of what you have?
I suspect that you are in the Quick workspace of Premiere Elements 13. The Quick workspace does not have all the assets that the Expert workspace has.
But, I am going into a fuller description below to give you an overview of the what is regarding Premiere Elements 13 content.
On what computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 13 running? Have you updated 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates? If not please do so?
I ask about the operating system, since Premiere Elements Mac typically has less content than Premiere Elements Windows.
I could understand if you said that you did not like them all, but, for you to write, not many options has me concerned about what you have run into
a. Quick versus Expert workspace
b. Some serious download and install issues
In the Premiere Elements 13 Content, Expert workspace, you should expect

There is more, but I think this gives you an idea of the what is.
Please review and consider, and then we can decide what next if necessary.
Just as I suspected...you are in the Quick workspace. Please switch to the Expert workspace for the full content.
I did not see your reply with screenshot until after I posted my post 4.
We will be watching for your update.
Add On...As a Mac user (as I can see from your screenshot), you may not have all the content as does the Windows user, even in the Expert workspace.
On example is keying effects were the Mac user does not have Chroma Key, Green Screen Key, Blue Screen Key. We can discuss that further if that is of interest.
Ahhh, I see! Thanks!
Sorry was sorting out a few other things.
So Mac is restricted to the amount few content on element ?
There are several items that are Windows Only.
In another forum, the following were the items not found in Premiere Elements Mac
I am strictly an Elements Windows user who tries to find common ground between Premiere Elements Mac and Windows.
With regard to content that is going to need downloading from within the opened project, the following may be of interest.
and for version 13, please refer to the section Part 3 Content in the Premiere Elements 13 First Look blog
