Can you provide a screenshot of the page setup in your print driver and also the image dimensions of the Photoshop document from the image size dialog? Is it possible the page setup specified is smaller than this document and thus the crop marks are getting cut off?

Illustrator can separate, you shouldn't need to go to Photoshop for that.

 

What colour are the rego marks created in Illustrator?

 

I am presuming that these are marks that you created, not auto-generated rego marks from the print settings.

Here is the link for the Illustrator forum:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/ct-p/ct-illustrator

 

Crop marks (trim marks) and bleed marks in Print dialog:

Crop mark and trim marks around a selection:

Illustrator also has a Separations panel (Window menu) so you can preview the separations.
