I've used Photoshop for 25 years and recently got into Lightroom. I seem to have misunderstood and figured I could use my computer hardrive, or my dropbox cloud or my icloud or ... did Adobe just assume they could force me into their cloud? I am confused and frustrated. I do not want another cloud. I just thought Lightroom seemed really cool now that I have a camera that shoots in raw but now "my" adobe cloud in full. ugh. Go away adobe cloud go away!!!

I suspect that you installed "Lightroom" which is now the cloud based app.  What was "Formerly knows as Lightroom" is now Lightroom Classic. Install that. Once you get Lightroom Classic running, it's possible to have it sync all those photos you put in the cloud down to your local drive. When that happens, you will have the full size originals that were  uploaded to the cloud on your local drive.

Once you have the image files downloaded to your local drive, use Lightroom Classic's Library module ONLY to reorganize the images into a folder structure you like.
