Sorry, I got this "black point" thought from it being a regular editing tool on my iPad and my iPhone.  I was unaware of the particulars and had no idea if I could use it in Elements for images from my regular camera. By @Mentalfloss1

There is a "Black Point" adjustment using Enhance>Adjust Lighting>Levels and Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Levels. You need to be in the Expert workspace. https://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/levels.htm You can also set the Blackpoint in camera raw by Shift double clicking the Blacks slider and the Whitepoint by Shift double clicking the Whites slider.

The subject line does not say all.

ok for the 'vibrance' question which is available in Elements.

For the 'black point', this has no meaning unless you are working in CMYK for printing on commercial offset solutions. Elements does not support CMYK and it does not need to.

This helps understand your question much better. I don't use Apple devices myself, so I can't help you there. For your editing and printing process with regular cameras I don't think you need to bother with CMYK as nearly all printing solutions for your photos are using RGB processes like your cameras or home printers.

Note that there is a dedicated forum for color management where you'll find helpful experts.

Edit:

An example of a useful discussion covering the use of  "black point compensation" when printing with a CMYK profile:
