When going into Photoshop from Lightroom, I want to go straight into Camera Raw.

The easiest way that I know of is to right-click the image thumbnail in Lightroom and choose Edit In... then, Open as Smart Object in Photoshop. When the image opens in Photoshop, just double-click the Smart Object thumbnail in the Layers palette to open the image with Camera Raw.
Hope this helps!
