it can be hard to edit some elements because they can be over other elements. It’s because Elementor has unlimited number of layers. You can simply click with right click and get access to Navigator. Then, you can choose any element and edit it.
If you want to edit background images and colors, you can do this by editing section (sometimes column) background. Background option is available in Style tab
