In Photoshop, it is not possible to put a layer in the lower folder above the layers of the folder above, unless it is removed from the folder and placed above the folder above. Or do not be in The same folder is located.

For example, I do not have the option to have a green layer between the blue and red layers, but in the same folder as it is.
Because one of the functions of the folders is the ordering of the layers, it does not affect the location of the folders.
My suggestion is to create a new tab for arranging layers and a tab for their placement.

Like in other theard your 'talent for confusion' again doesn't let me understand what you mean :(

On provided image example say exactly which layer(Set) you have selected at the moment, and where new layer can't be added when you create it (so between / over / below what layers), while where it is?

You may also play with (un)collapsed folder to add a new layer then with/out holding a Ctrl key.

I admit I am still not sure I understand... correct me if I'm wrong:

- it is like the 'Green' layer is in 'Group 1' layerSet at start
- you select it and then you want to trigger new dialog where you can indicate where that layer has to be copied (without beiing removed from original folder)

If that is like it, why can't you just:

- select a layer that you want to copy
- press 'Ctrl j' (to make a copy over itself)
- drag it to desired location in 'Layer' panel?


If that's it I understand you'd like your individual way to do some things, if so that is still possible by scripting, but I agree that with many layer(Set)s that could be somehow convinient to select from Dropdown list where to send copy of selected layer.

It is logical. Green layer in whatever group but under Red layer can't be located in a document still over red layer (so between this one and blue layer that is over it). Why do you think that would be normal to have Green layer over Blue layer if on Layer's tree it's already below that Blue layer...
