sRGB is probably OK for your applications. AdobeRGB
is used for very colorful scenes (food, fashion etc.).
Check your images by numbers: if the bright and and
dark gray cloth has almost equal numbers R=G=B for
each pixel then it is neutral in the file.
If these neutral parts have a tint on the monitor
then the monitor profile is wrong.
A test is difficult, because adaptation to the whole
image can disturb the impression.
If these parts are printed with a tint, then your
online printer should re-calibrate his machine.
It's not useful to convert your sRGB images to
the PrinterProfile. It would be even wrong, because
meanwhile they might have a better or more actual
IMO it should be sufficient to tell them that all
your images are in sRGB, but for safety you can
embed the rather small profile (3kB) in each image.

You should take a look at your highlights. In your example, you say Yellow is appearing in the highlights ( White areas ). In Photoshop, open the original in sRGB and read the Whites via the info palette. If you get 0%Y, then the color cast is occuring in the output device.
A word of caution. Whenever you make a change of any kind, do the change on a copy of the original. Try not to rename it the same, even if you save it to another folder. Create a naming convention that reveals the change. For instance, name the original: Photo01_sRGB.jpg; create a copy and name the copy: Photo01A_AdobeRGB.jpg. That way, you can still revert back to the original or always retain the original in the future while knowing what was done to the file by looking at the name. This helps the vendor because they'll know that the file is either sRGB or AdobeRGB based on the name of the file, they do not even have to open it. Then when problems crop up, you'll both be able to reference the file that's causing the issue(s).
