When you read an .ai or .eps file into Photoshop it rasterizes it, which means it turns everything in one into pixels (although it may preserve layer information). Thus, most of the information about individual objects is generally going to be lost.

To edit a single converted object in Photoshop, you'll need to use the tools that Photoshop offers for dealing with raster images (which are considerable).

To edit the individual objects in these files as objects, one needs to use a vector (as opposed to a raster) graphics editor -- like Adobe Illustrator or something similar.

Hope this helps clarify the situation for you.
