I have been trying to learn more advanced retouching techniques and really wanted to use the "frequency separation" in Elements. Frequency separation (more or less) separates color and texture into different layers.

If you set a layer to Color Mode it will only effect the color.

If you set a layer to Luminosity it will only effect the texture.

You can then use the opacity sliders and masks to tweak.
