you don't paste, you place the photoshop file in your indesign layout.

You can select the art in your layout, and in the links panel, click the pencil icon. i till open the file in photoshopyou do your edits, save, and it will automatically update in the layout document in indesign.

If it’s going to be done that way it is important to save the file as PDF from Photoshop to keep the vector properties of the text intact.

You’ll have to recreate it in InDesign.

If you can recreate the appearance of the text in InDesign, then DataMerge is possible. Otherwise, it won't work. If you can't reproduce the text effect in InDesign, you can look into using variables in Photoshop to get it done. It's not as intuitive or as easy as InDesign but it might be possible.
