Spot colors in Photoshop are handled differently than InDesign and Illustrator. You'll need to read up on this for creating custom channels. Even then it wont import from another application. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/printing-spot-colors.html If you need spot colors, I would work reverse. Do you CMYK image work in PS then bring it in to AI for spot colors.
