The various licenses specify what you can do with any asset that you license. However, for a more precise answer, I think you should post your question on the Adobe Stock forum. This is the Adobe Stock Contributors forum.

You own the copyright on your modifications, but not on the different parts you used for a creation. Technically, this is a mixed work, and you would need to get the authorization of all the authors for doing this. That's not a possibility, you can acquire with a stock subscription or similar. So, as others have said: No, you can't do this.
