I add textures and overlays.  It's "BYOT&O" (bring your own). They're individual files and are added just as any other image layer is added. Then you choose your blending mode and Opacity (minus Fill Opacity—desperately needed), and you can also mask the layer.

Are you referring to Layer Styles? Or Gradient or Pattern fill layers?

I was referring to texture jpg’s from places like 2 Lil Owls.

Those are nice. I have several of hers, also. They work just fine as image layers inside PS iPad, assuming you find a good way to get them onto your iPad so Place From Files can use them. One way is to AirDrop individual files into your Camera Roll, or folders of files into a folder in Files. I can also use iCloud Drive or Dropbox since I have those services.

Then all the Blending Modes are there. No Fill Opacity, so be careful about those special 8 blending modes, or just make a point, as I do, of fixing that back at the desktop. But Multiply, Screen, Overlay, Soft Light, Luminosity, even Color, work fine with layer Opacity. And all of that is in the Properties panel just below the Layers panels.

And/or paint a mask. I even use ready-made overlays as masks and clip the texture layer to the overlay. It's all very possible with PS iPad as it currently exists.
