So, now I can select the sky in LR. In Photoshop, I could hit delete and it would make those pixels transparent. Then what is left (the ground) could be easily added to other photos and videos. I don't mind tripping to Photoshop but I'm wondering if it is still necessary.

It's still necessary for two reasons. First, Lightroom cannot create transparent pixels, and second it cannot combine images.
