Can I use a stock photo with the standard license for a book cover?  Also, can I modify the image, add words, lighten or darken it, etc?

First of all, you may modify stock images to your needs. There are only few limits laid out in the licensing terms. One limitation is highly er0tic art, generally anything where the peple on the picture are represented in a way that the dignity of them may be hurt heavily.   Second as the book cover is not the main incentive to buy the book and as long as your print run (both paper and digital) stays below 500k, you are good with a standard license.   see here for more information: https://stock.adobe.com/license-terms...
