If you're in an album, you'd be able to add photos to the album from All Photos. But you can't add photos from All Photos into All Photos because that just wouldn't make sense.

Exactly ;-)

I’ve been confused too some time ago. All photos refers to the photos in LR and camera roll to the phone’s images. Maybe not the best nomenclature, but once you know it, it’s fine ;-)

All Photos means All Photos from my phone, which includes screenshots. When I go to Camera Roll, it shows only photos that my camera has taken or that I have downloaded, no screenshots. That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

All Photos refers to all of the photos in Lightroom. If you go to add from the Camera Roll, then tap the ...'s in the top right corner, you can change the filter to include screenshots.
