Not really sure if this helps or not, but when you open the image to view its properties (right before the downloading step), there are options below of related images; you may find your desired frame of image there.
Let me know if that helps!
None of my images have greyscale counterparts shown.
It's really a question of not being able to make modifications and save as a PSD file that is linked to the original JPEG.
I wish Adobe Stock used PSD as their primary file format.
I can take that as a feedback Sandee.
Currently only jpeg and EPS formats are available.
Being able to save as a Photoshop file that is linked to the original JPEG would be great!

You can save a Photoshop file that is linked to the original JPEG but you have to create a new file first. To answer your original question, this is what I would do.
1. Create a template PSD file at a size that works best for placement in the inDesign layout.
2. Add a B&W Adjustment layer to the template PSD.
3. Find the stock image, drag it to the template PSD placing the layer below the B&W adjustment
4. Save as a new file with suitable name
5. Place the new PSD file in InDesign (linked not embedded)
6. Repeat as needed for all the images
When you are ready to license the stock image use the inDesign links panel to open each PSD, license the image from Photoshop and then close and save the file. The updated licensed image should update in InDesign.
I understand your challenge. My workflow adds extra steps but it's the only way to accomplish the in app licensing option.
I'm just adding this for anyone else who reads this that when the JPEG image is added to the PSD file, it's a Smart Object. So it can be edited and updated.
But the workflow is perfect! It should be written up and featured on the very front of the Adobe Stock web page.
Glad I could help. I should have mentioned that the placed stock image is a Creative Cloud linked smart object. It is linked back to the Creative Cloud Library where you saved the stock image when you selected it in your search. The stock image Photoshop Layer will show a cloud icon, not a standard smart object icon.
