It's not simple at all -- these attempts at templates rarely are. Was it from Adobe Stock? Can you link to the stock template?

It looks like it's a clipping mask defined for the layer.

 

So: You need to put your photo on that layer on top of the placeholder image. You can do that by placing your photo and arranging it. Then Edit > Cut

Then select that placeholder and Edit > Paste in front.

 

In the layers panel you can then just drag the placeholder into the trash.

 

The clipping mask should work automatically, since it's defined for the layer.
