Why are Different Components available in Edit and Add Forms?

I feel like I’ve come against a number of problems that could be solved if I just had the fields in the edit field available to me in the add section as well. Just an example is like when the user does upload their image, they can immediately view it on the add screen. Have also wanted to add buttons to my add screens, but those are not available either.

Is there a reason why these components are not available? Seems like it would add a lot of functionality.

I also feel like the used to be available, but then they were removed? Going back to an old app I haven’t used for a while and noticed the buttons I had added are now text entry fields.
