I have Photoshop Elements 2020 to use as an external editor to LR 6.14. I am attempting to follow in the Book Lightroom CC/6. In LR preferences it indicates Photoshop as the external editor. How do get Elements as the external editor? I provided a snipe of the preferences section.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

If present, LR6 detects Photoshop as the PRIMARY external Editor.
If that happens, then you must install Photoshop Elements as an ADDITIONAL External Editor. There is no difference when choosing external editors as All will be listed in the External Editor list. Your screen shot shows this already to be the case.

At one time (when LR6 was still being supported) it was possible to uninstall Photoshop, Uninstall Lightroom 6 and uninstall PS Elements. Then Reinstall only PS Elements before reinstalling LR6. I’m not sure it this is still a practical approach since LR6 is out of support and relies upon a 32 bit installer app.
