I've licensed an Adobe Stock vector (File# 399343242), but thus far, I am unable to remove the black checkered background in Photoshop or Illustrator. Is this file faulty somehow or am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated!

There are no PNG files in Adobe Stock! If there were, you could easily have a transparent background. 

This one is offered as either AI/EPS or JPEG. Which one did you download?

You need to download the vector file and this file needs to be edited in Illustrator. As I haven't looked precisely into this asset, assets like this have an object or preferably a layer that can be switched off to disable the background. Unfortunately, some of those assets have the background object buried deep in their structure instead of clearly putting it on a layer named appropriately.

 

The background object only simulates the appearance of the transparency representation in Photoshop but is in real a fully opaque object. The creators do so because without a background, such "star" images look weird because of their complex handling of the transparency.
