This is not true. I have been running CS6 on the MacOS prior to Monterey. I just upgraded to Monerey and CS6 does not work. What do I do now?
Can anyone help me with getting Dreamweaver CS6 working on my Mac running Monterey? My company is out of business without my ability to use it. I have just spend 1:30 hours and another 1:00 on phone trying to get some customer service help.

Yes it is true. You need macOS Mojave or less. The legacy Creative Suite installers and plugins are not compatible with newer OSs. They simply won't run on Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey.
If you feel it's practical to keep using outdated software from 10 years ago, go ahead and get Parallels virtual machine for 80 Euros/year. You can then run an older OS on Parallels to support your aged out software that's discontinued & unsupported.
Or just get modern software that IS compatible with your new OS. Your choice.

3 Easy Ways to Identify Genuine Adobe Staff
Perhaps you can buy a second hand (used) Mac running a suitable system. Upgrading without checking compatibility can be a catastrophic decision, and you always need a Plan B. Certainly, Adobe won't help you with software for which support finished 5 years ago, even if they could.
Get a Creative Cloud subscription to the latest Dreamweaver CC (version 21.2). Or find another code editor that is compatible with Monterey. Nobody should be using outdated web authoring software. Too much has changed in 10 years.
