Custom font usage

Several months ago, I found a stencil font on Adobe Fonts called Joschmi, in the family called Hidden Treasures of the Bauhaus Dessau. For a project in my graphic design class, I made a non-stencil font based on Joschmi. Now I'm turning it into a full display typeface, and I'm trying to figure out how I am allowed to use this custom font I made from an Adobe font. It is essentially my own non-stencil version of Joschmi, with a few alterations to square off the rounded caps.

I'm not having any luck figuring out how I am allowed to use this custom font. I'm assuming I can show it in my portfolio and use it in my projects, but can I use it commercially? Would I be able to sell it, or allow it to be used for free by others? What restrictions would I have?

Below is an image of my font compared to Joschmi.

I just found this in the Adobe Fonts user guide. Does that mean I'm good on what I explained above?
